There’s a lot of information about COVID-19 in the media, but not all of it is trustworthy and the situation is changing quickly. We’ve collated a range or resources from national organisations and those we work with across Greater Manchester. We’ll continue to update this page as and when new resources come in.
To make it easier for you to find the resources you need easily we’ve grouped them under topic headings:
- Stay safe and well
- Stay connected
- Keep a sense of purpose
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Keeping physically active
- Eating and drinking well
- Who to contact for help and advice
- Advice for volunteers
Information for people who are hearing or visually impaired can be found at the Adult Social Care COVID-19 Resources page.
GP Dementia COVID-19 Guidance v3 This is a quick guide to coping with the complex problems that people living with dementia and their families are facing during COVID-19. It was developed by Dr Helen Martin (GP and Dementia United’s Clinical Lead) in conjunction with Dementia United. The focus is on dealing with challenging behaviour and supporting people at home, planning ahead and acute management including recognising atypical presentations and managing delirium.
Resources for care homes April 2020. We’ve collated some resources into one place to enable care home staff to have access to good practice and guidance, without having to work through the vast amount of information coming in. We recognise that we are in challenging times for care homes and this impacts on care home residents who are living with dementia, family members and staff.
Can you help us by completing a short survey?
This short survey will help us to assess how people living with dementia are feeling and responding at this challenging time. Your responses will help to inform us about what’s working well and help us to identify any areas of support that Greater Manchester services can improve on. https://surveys.socialsensecic.co.uk/s/GMcovid19/
