DSDC has extensive experience of carrying out bespoke evaluations of dementia care services and undertaking consultative exercises. Each evaluation is designed to meet the needs of the service, and typically would include an action plan and recommendations for service improvement. DSDC can work with a service to assist in the implementation of an action plan, provide mentoring and advice to staff and management.
Bangor University will usually make a charge for this type of work, and the scale of charges is available on request.
