My dad had multiple long term conditions + is 83. Vascular dementia is worsening + I didn’t know what to do. Social worker recommended intensive recovery intervention services (IRIS) as an option. Caring, friendly people, punctual visits – vital, as having strange disinterested people in my dad’s home at erratic times – makes my dad’s confusion worse.
Deducted service, didn’t stop with visits until full time care in place – then took trouble to ensure handover.
Extremely grateful for the work they did. Their experience in dementia really showed + they extended their support/communication to myself – being kept informed helped keep me sane at a difficult time.
