JackDawe Dementia TeamSpecialist home care support for people with Dementia and their carers
What does it do?
Home Care Workers within the JackDawe Team work with citizens to provide tailored care and support to help people with everyday tasks and daily living needs.
Staff include Home Care Workers, Mental Health Nurses and Occupational Therapists who are all specifically trained in this area of work.
The team covers the whole of the Nottingham City area and was named after one of its first citizens, the late Mr. Jack Dawes of Clifton.
The aim of the team is to work with people and their carers to develop a Care Plan that promotes and encourages independence to help them remain in their own home.
The Care Plan is a support package between the team and the citizen - focusing on how the team can best support them and help to meet their needs. As these will change over time so will the Care Plan.
- We offer specialist Dementia support and all our staff are trained in the area
- All services we provide are in-house and we are the only organisation to have direct access to Occupational Therapists and Mental Health Nurses

How to access or apply for it:
'JackDawe has enabled the family to have peace of mind that mum is safe and is eating. The ladies that visit have become valuable social contacts for mum - the service has given us our lives back!'
'We managed to keep mum in her own home up until four weeks before she sadly passed away, surrounded by her children and grandchildren - we would not have been able to do this without the dedicated and devoted care given to mum by your team. I cannot begin to let you know how much we appreciate and respect the amazing group of people we have met over the last few months. With love and respect'.
'I have a great respect for the carers from the JackDawe team. Well trained and nothing is regarded as "too much trouble". They communicate very well and have looked after my mother for a number of years. I am very grateful for their kind care and attention to her individual needs. Well Done!'
'Absolutely fantastic. A real life saver. Thanks to all concerned and many congratulations on a wonderful service.'
'The hurt and grief I felt from loosing my wife was matched and immediately lightened by the wave of love, concern, and such genuine sympathy ... from all of the JackDawe Team. We are forever in your debt for the gentle and compassionate care you all gave to her. We are proud and privileged to have known you all'
