Consultation on proposals to develop a Dementia Hub for Coventry

We are proposing to transform Maymorn Day Centre into a dementia hub for Coventry.

Maymorn Centre is a council operated, Monday to Friday day service for people with advanced Dementia. Prior to the pandemic, the number of people using the service has gradually reduced, there are currently 15 filled spaces which is under capacity. Maymorn is currently open 2 days a week for a smaller number of spaces with a view to increase to 3 days subject to demand.

To get a better feel of the centre take a virtual tour


Background

During the pandemic, we reviewed all day service provisions, exploring ways in which we could develop the service to better meet the needs of people living with dementia and their carers. We engaged with a number of organisations, people with dementia and their carers to seek their views on what was needed for Coventry and the vision below was created based on their feedback.

We want:

A single hub as the ‘go to’ place for people with dementia and their carers. The hub would :

  • be a ‘one stop’ shop for advice and support, to reconnect with others
  • be a base for a number of organisations involved in providing a service to people with dementia
  • provide services on and off site
  • have a single phone number manned by one organisation who would have the full directory or services and support available to signpost and refer people as appropriate.
  • support a much wider cohort of people with dementia, from younger adults/early onset dementia to those with memory issues without a diagnosis of dementia.


The vision aligns with the overarching principle set out in the National Dementia Strategy (2009) that states that " everyone affected by dementia is enabled to live well"

Further background information can be found here

The Council is committed to understanding what impact the development of a hub might have on the different communities of Coventry. An equality impact assessment (EIA) has been produced for this purpose.

Please let us know what you think by completing the survey below.

The deadline for responses is December 12 2021
