What to do if you are worried about an adult

Good Practice in Supporting People with Dementia

It is estimated that 850,000 people in the UK live with dementia and they are at greater risk of abuse or neglect than those without a diagnosis. New national guidance sets out good practice for working with people living with dementia, suggesting ways in which professionals can provide quality safeguarding and best involve people in decision-making. The guidance suggests that practitioners must consider how the person who is central to the adult safeguarding process views the alleged neglect/abuse and to ensure that they are central to the development of their care plans. The guidance was published on 31st March 2021 by the Department of Health & Social Care, authored by the University of Bath.
