II.2.1)Total quantity or scope:

The London Borough of Barnet invites expressions of interest from organisations with the appropriate skills and experience to provide:-
Dementia services:
— Lot 1: Dementia Support Services:
— Dementia advisor service
The Dementia Advisor Service will offer advice, information and support to people with dementia and their carers. The Service will provide advice, information and support primarily at the threshold of diagnosis but also thereafter where required, to both people with dementia and their carers. The service will signpost and facilitate access to services and support people in getting the help and care they need.
— Day opportunities service
The Day Opportunities Service will provide a safe environment and a programme of activities for people with dementia, based on individual interests, well-being and socialisation. The service will primarily support those with a dementia diagnosis and a moderate level of need, who are ambulant and self caring with assistance. Adopting a personalised approach, the service will provide opportunities for socialisation and engagement, including within the wider community. The Service will contribute to enabling people to maintain their independence and stay in their own homes, and to avoid hospital admission.
— Carer support
Working in conjunction with the Day Opportunities Service but also separate from it is the delivery of general advice, group and social activities for carers. The carer support will include:
— provision of carers’ sessions parallel to activities offered to people with dementia within the day opportunities service and elsewhere (such as at Dementia Cafés) such that both can attend
— response to individual referrals from carers on a case basis, and facilitation of peer groups and networks
— Dementia Café and peer support service and dementia specific programmes for carers
The Dementia Café and Peer Support Service will provide an informal and social environment for people with dementia and their carers, offering information, advice and activities. Dementia Cafés will provide a forum for positive dialogue amongst people newly diagnosed with dementia and carers, reducing isolation and helping all concerned to address the challenges ahead.
— Dementia-Specific Programmes for Carers
Dementia-specific programmes will aim to provide carers with the skills needed to carry out their caring roles. Programmes for carers will be delivered on a time limited basis to closed groups within which carers can learn more about dementia and explore their circumstances and coping mechanisms. Programmes will be delivered with a view towards continuation of support through a peer network.
— Lot 2: Programme to increase sustainability of dementia carers
— Design and establish a new support service to help increase carer sustainability in caring for people with dementia. The service will aim to reduce carer breakdown for those who are caring for people with dementia, to help maintain and improve the wellbeing of both the carer and person with dementia and to, help people with dementia to remain in their own homes for longer rather than entering into residential care. To include:
— Design a service model (to help support and increase the numbers of carers who are sustained in being able to care for people with dementia).
— Define the input required from other professionals in order to successfully achieve desired outcomes
— Define the resources needed to implement the service model successfully (e.g. therapists, social workers, psychiatrist, psychologist, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurse, dietician, activities budget, ongoing support, management etc.)
— Implement the service model
— Be innovative
— Evaluate the service.
