LCH NHS Trust’s Liveability Service shortlisted for award

Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust’s (LCH) Liveability Service for elderly people has been shortlisted for a European Innovate Dementia Award.

The annual awards ceremony recognises pioneering initiatives from across Europe that contribute to improving the daily life of people living with dementia and their carers.

The Liveability Team were nominated for the award by some of their colleagues from Mersey Care and Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) for their work in supporting people living with dementia in Liverpool.

The team are shortlisted as one of just three finalists for the award from across Europe, and have been invited to present the Liveability initiative to a panel of judges at the World Health and Design Forum in Eindhoven on Thursday 22 October.

The final winner of the awards will be announced at the Innovate Dementia Award Ceremony which is taking place on the same day.

Liveability is an NHS nurse-led service which provides specialist exercise classes and gym sessions to help promote physical activity and independence amongst over 50’s in Liverpool. They also provide home assessments to help reduce the risk of falls and social isolation amongst the city’s older vulnerable people.

Diane Singleton, Liveability Service Lead for Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust said;

“We’re delighted that Liveability has been shortlisted for this prestigious award, which recognises our work as an example of best practice in dementia care in Europe. ”

She added,

“I also want to say a huge thank you to our colleagues at Mersey Care and LJMU for nominating us for this award.”
