We provide ‘Dementia Assist’ Services

Dealing with dementia is often one of life’s toughest challenges; especially for those trying to find the best local services and solutions for the ones they love.

Sorting through the legal, financial, NHS and local authority rules and documentation just adds extra pain to what can already be a highly emotional time for your family.

We Provide Support Service to Care Quality Commission Experts by Experience

In partnership with Remploy, we provide CQC’s Experts by Experience with a full package of support to enable them to participate as a valued member of CQC’s inspection teams, across London and South England.

What sort of Deputy Assist help are you looking for?

Deputies manage the property and financial affairs of adults who are diagnosed by clinicians as lacking mental capacity to do this themselves. We provide Deputyship Assist Service. We assist Deputies who are appointed by the Court of Protection. The Office of the Public Guardian is responsible for supervising the work of deputies appointed by the Court.  Deputies undertake and promise the Court of Protection to ‘act in the person’s best interests’, one of the five main principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. We also provide free power of attorney clinics to charities.


Care Home Plans Assist can help you to be more involved in daily care

We provide a unique Care Home Plan Assist Service, where we show the Deputy how to be more involved with the care home reviewing their care plans, monthly.


We support Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) Experts by Experience (EXE)

What is an Expert by Experience? An EXE is someone who takes part in CQC inspections to help the inspector find out about the quality of a service. Because EXEs have first hand experience of health or care home services, they often have great insight and know what questions to ask people to find out what a service is like. Treat me as a person is a key focus for our team of EXEs when they attend inspections in Acute Mental Health Hospitals, Dementia Care Homes, GPs and other settings rated by the CQC. EXEs are valued members of the CQC’s inspection teams. See link EXEs are Awesome https://youtu.be/7fMkMSzuSI0
