Two members of Vibrance staff were happy to help when Alzheimer’s Society approached them for help with an article focussing on dementia.

Quality Manager, Sue Warren, and service manager, Trisha McDonagh, were interviewed for an article in the charity’s monthly magazine, Living With Dementia.

Alzheimer’s Society was interested in the experience they had trialling a new evaluation toolkit, which aims to help services adapt to the changing needs of older people with learning disabilities, including those with dementia.

Sue and Trish were able to explain how the toolkit had worked for them during the pilot, and how they felt it had benefitted staff and service users.
