Good morning all from Stoke on Trent
Thank you Keith
I'm trying to submit my poll results, but not accepted when I press submit. Please could you fix this
Hi Julie - the poll problem is with zoom and we can’t change it while we are live. Thank you for trying to submit it and letting us know there is a problem. Adele
Thank you, fixwd now xx
I had 2 falls in Sept and lost 2 teeth so I contacted the dentist. She wanted to call me by phone to discuss my mouth but she could not see it. After a lot of persuasion I went to the dentist surgery.
There is no zoom calls in my area, only telephone conversations. After problems recently with my foot, I couldn't get an appt. I tried to send a photo to an email I had been given, but the message came back that it was unmanned. No understanding of the problems of using the telephone connected by living with dementia appreciated by professionals and they don't listen when I try to explain
To ensure that people living with dementia are not excluded or disadvantaged 'professionals' do need to complete an impact assessment on the new normal services they are putting into place. They need to be talking directly to people living with dementia and stakeholders when designing these services.
Thank you Chris.
The problem is that in most areas there is no clear dementia service\pathway, so one area offering quality service is good to hear, but isn't accessible to most
Hi Agnes Houston, I know you are in the audience today. Would you like to share with us your thoughts in the chat box? I know you have strong thoughts on this topic
Ditto Chris M
This needs of PLWD need to delivered to inhouse training across the board in healthcare
Lorraine Brown says - I agree with Chris that true picture of oneself does not present itself on virtual platforms with a clinician. Anxiety levels are low and the safe environment of home is a protected factor. In a hospital setting one could experience a “white coat” experience where anxiety is caused by being in a clinical setting
Most medical professionals are not aimed towards building relationships with us, but look at brief, one off interventions
I have a hearing problem and avoid using the phone if I can.
Not everyone has a carer/supporter at home. Many of live alone and self manage our care, but this not acknowledged
Well said Nigel
Thank you Frances and John.
Good point Keith
Well said Jennifer. My Receptionist tries hard to block me having conversations with my GP. Communication has stopped
Quality of service does appear to differ throughout the 3 nations: access to GPs, hospital appointments, dentistry, other health issues, etc.
Thank you Jennifer.
Love listening to Jennifer!
There is great assumption that if you are older or have dementia that you will not be able to use IT. We are living proof that this is wrong
Thanks Jennifer, very well said
Thank you Jennifer, you put things across so well
Always interesting and enlightening to listen to Jennifer.

they asked my husband to send a pic of his feet
There are no dental treatments in my area on NHS as they have told not to use tools, yet it's available if you can afford private care
So true Paul. There will have been almost total stopping of NHS care in my area for almost a whole year now
Delaying treatment results in more expensive intervention later
Thank you Paul.
I think many professionals are so overwhelmed at the moment that they are not committed to looking at and trying new approaches such as zoom calls
Far less post diagnostic support now than previously, which was always bad. The charities have also had to close doors, leaving the newly diagnosed neglected
Every Dr is now Dr Dolittle
Not every Doctor !!
Too true Maq. Little imagination being used to avert some of the problems
Each health trust is different and have different problems.
I think this always has to be an option for the future. It will give more access to GPs
Extremely insightful and informative meeting. Thank you everyone (speakers and those on chat).
The offer of choice is a much needed one, thank you Frances
Thanks all for a great meeting - very informative.
thank you all very much
