Warwickshire County Council is seeking bids for the provision of 4 Dementia Navigators which will provide information, advice and emotional support to people diagnosed with dementia in Warwickshire, people actively seeking a diagnosis of dementia and their families.

Warwickshire County Council is offering a block contract for 2 years (from 1st April 2015) with an option to extend for a further period not exceeding 24 months.

The service is to be delivered across Warwickshire by four full-time equivalent Dementia Navigators,  ie: one Dementia Navigator for the Boroughs of North Warwickshire and Nuneaton and Bedworth, one for Rugby District, one for Stratford-upon-Avon District and one for Warwick District.

Contact with the service will be via telephone, email and/or face to face depending on an individual’s need and preference.

The Dementia Navigator will provide one-to-one support in the person’s home, or another appropriate and accessible venue if required. The level of support will vary depending on individuals’ needs.

The Navigators’ role will focus on enabling and empowering service customers to find opportunities to lead a new life which has meaning, value and purpose, and signposting people with dementia and carers to appropriate other services and support.

The service will be delivered by a holistic / integrated approach and will consider the “whole” person, not simply symptoms and disease.

The service will provide early intervention / preventative support through:

•         A single point of access to information and advice following a diagnosis of dementia or to those going through the diagnostic journey

•         Signposting to support services available

•         Empowering healthier lifestyle choices

•         Practical and low level emotional support by promoting greater emotional resilience in customers.

•         Support access to peer-led group support

•         Provision of training around dementia awareness and coping strategies for informal carers and good practice in dementia care

Full details of the Authority’s requirements are included in the Invitation to Tender.

00001547 – Dementia Day Opportunities

Warwickshire County Council Tenders - Mon, 04/08/2014 - 10:00

Warwickshire County Council is seeking bids for high quality, specialist and community based support to adults with a diagnosis of dementia in Warwickshire.

The Dementia Day Opportunities service is to maintain the health, wellbeing, independence and social inclusion of people with dementia whilst making sure they are an active citizen within their community and by providing an opportunity for their carers, family members or relevant friends to have a break from the caring role.

The service can consist of either a building based provision in the community or provided as outreach support, or a mixture of both for people with dementia who are currently living in their own homes in Warwickshire, and will:

  • Seamlessly link with key parts of the health economy
  • Be fit for the current and future needs of local population
  • Ensure that people with dementia and their carers are supported to remain independent in the community for as long as is appropriate and possible
  • Prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital and/or residential or nursing care

The Service will be required to create excellent community links and enable access to meet the needs of hard to reach groups and those who are isolated and live in Warwickshire.

The Dementia Day Opportunities service is county wide with the geographical areas aligned to the current Warwickshire District and Borough boundaries.

These areas are being tendered as separate Lots each with a Block contract for 2 years with an option to extend for a further period not exceeding 24 months. Each block contract will be for a specified number of sessions per week: A session is classed as 6 hours provision per person, or 3 hours provision each for 2 people.

The available Lots are:

  • North Warwickshire – 16 sessions per week
  • Warwick – 16 sessions per week
  • Rugby – 40 sessions per week
  • Nuneaton & Bedworth – 40 sessions per week
  • Stratford – 20 sessions per week

Suppliers are permitted to bid for one or more of the Lots.

In addition to the Block Contract volumes the Authority may wish to purchase additional spot sessions and providers will be expected to meet any additional capacity should the demand arise.

Full details of the Authority’s requirements are included in the Invitation to Tender.

Applicants should be aware that on award of new contracts, it is possible that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 may apply and if so, the contracts of employment of those employees who are currently providing Dementia Day services would transfer to the successful applicants.

Applicants will need to take their own advice as to whether TUPE does apply to this contract. In the meantime, to assist applicants in preparing realistic submissions, information about the number and cost of employees currently providing the service is included in the Appendices.

Applicants should be aware that volumes and block contract amounts may increase if additional funding becomes available or may decrease if funding reduces, during the term of the contracts.
