Jade Euro Med Ltd

Jade Euro Med is a family run company with its origins dating back to the 1800s in Southend. We have a highly specialised team of nurses which are both dedicated and experienced in the field of Continence and urology care. We offer a full assessment in the patients own home or surroundings, as well as unbiased product advice and fitting. Our support and follow up to the patient and carers is second to none. We supply a prompt, discreet prescription service for all continence and urology products available on prescription in the community. We can take referrals from all professionals, carers and even the patient themselves as we will liaise with the patients consent with other people involved in their care.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Jade Euro Med's roots originate in Southend and as a company we feel that we have a sense of belonging there. We feel we want to be able to support the community and give something back to them as they supported us over the years we were located there. In terms of our service we want to help and support patients with their needs in continence care. With our team of nurses we feel we can make a difference to people's lives both patients and carers if the most basic of human need is meet in the right way with the right solutions for that patient enabling them to maintain their dignity and their way of life. This we hope to achieve in a timely, sympathetic manner to the patient.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

The challenges are the members of the team having a full understanding of Dementia care as well as the patients knowing that we are around to help them with their needs in a discreet way.

As a nursing service we have to be invited to see the patient either by themselves or another professional. This can be a stumbling block as we are also not allowed to openly advertise our service so a large majority of our work is spread by word of mouth. Having access to groups of people and being able to inform them of our role is of great benefit to us as we provide advice, support and research based information on all issues of continence care.

    Being implemented

    2016 - Fourth Quarter Update

    we try to talk about dementia care in our training. One of the nurses did go in Feb and did a talk to carers and people living with dementia

  • To provide time and appropriate instructions for Dementia patients and their carers

    To ensure that more time is scheduled for patients with Dementia when we see the patient in their own environment. This will ensure that they have time to understand and for us to understand both the patients and carers needs in regard to the continence issues. We will also then be able to leave the appropriate instructions for them to use. This will need us to produce specific literature for these patients and may take the form of pictures as well as writing in a larger or different format.
