Dementia Tsar Praises New CIC Service
On June 28th Community Integrated Care’s ground-breaking £5 million dementia care service EachStep Blackley was officially opened by Professor Alistair Burns, the Department of Health’s National Clinical Director for Dementia.
Speaking at the event, Professor Alistair Burns said, “EachStep is one of the most innovative services I have seen. I have been so impressed by the staff I have met here, the quality and facilities of this wonderful building and the community involvement the service encourages. EachStep is a great start on creating a dementia friendly community.”
Community Integrated Care's Communications Team interviewed Professor Burns at the event to find out why he supports EachStep, the difference he thinks it will make to the lives of people with dementia and whether he thinks this new model for dementia care can make a difference nationally.
