Dementia Dwelling Grants

Researching the impact of the Worcestershire Dementia Dwelling Grants

Worcester City Council and other partners have led the development of a new grant for people living with dementia to improve their wellbeing and to enable them to stay at home longer before having to move into residential or other long-term care. These Dementia Dwelling Grants (DDG) will provide aids and home adaptations that are thought to benefit people living with dementia. The Association for Dementia Studies has been commissioned to provide an independent evaluation of the pilot programme.

The evaluation will combine qualitative and quantitative methods including case study interviews in order to explore the effect of the DDG on people living with dementia at home and to provide the Council with evidence to inform its future planning and for dissemination to other local authorities and interested parties.
