The experiences of people who pay for care: (or social care snakes and ladders)

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


An interactive session with people with dementia and their carers talking about their experiences of trying to access the support they need. Participants were asked to think of the social care system as a game of snakes and ladders and consider whether different squares on the board (with labels like 'Contact with a charity' and 'Social care assessment') would lead to a snake or a ladder for people who fund their own social care.
