A good CHAT boosts quality and saves money in dementia care

A nurse-led service aimed at providing more care for care home residents with dementia outside hospital has produced big savings and improved patient care – winning national endorsement from NHS England.

As well as providing expert care to the residents, the Enfield Care Home Assessment Team (CHAT)  supports and trains care home staff – giving them the confidence to respond to the residents’ needs and easier access to healthcare services when needed.
