Discussing dementia care
MBCHF is a forum for discussion and learning focused on dementia care in communal settings such as nursing homes, care homes and extra care housing.
The Forum was set up shortly after the death of Margaret Butterworth (1922-2002) who set up CRAC Dementia (Council of Relatives to Assist in the Care of Dementia), a group of carers who talked to medical, psychology and nursing students to improve future professionals' understanding of people with dementia.
The Forum provides an opportunity for staff, carers and others with an interest in this area to gather and discuss means of improving the quality of care and life for people with dementia living in care homes.
After a hiatus due to Covid, we are very happy to re-launch the Margaret Butterworth Care Home Forum!
There will be 3 webinars over the course of 2022. The first webinar on 23 March 2022, from 2.00-4.00 will focus on the theme 'Visiting in care homes during Covid-19'. See below.
