Speakers To Be Announced Soon

Inspired by the actions of the Get There Together project , this session will be looking at how we can use tech and digital resources to help people to reengage with their community safely post-Covid.

What is the Get There Together project?

The Get There Together project has been driven by the needs of people living with dementia within the coronavirus recovery agenda. They have created video and leaflet resources that give people a visual walk-through of community locations and services. This provides an opportunity for people to ‘rehearse’ visiting places in person, lessening anxiety, encouraging inclusion, and reducing isolation.

The project has been led by the all Wales Consultant Allied Health Professions (AHP) Lead for Dementia, contributing to the AHP Covid-19 Rehabilitation and Recovery Agenda for Wales and aligned to The Dementia Action Plan for Wales (2018-2022).

Get There Together is a national and regional community collaboration, demonstrating strong partnership working, keeping people’s needs at the centre of how health and communities come together, supporting people living with dementia to live well.

Bydd y sesiwn hon, sydd wedi’i hysbrydoli gan y camau gweithredu yn sgil prosiect Mentro Gyda’n Gilydd (Get There Together), yn edrych ar sut gallwn ni ddefnyddio adnoddau technolegol a digidol i helpu pobl i ymgysylltu â’u cymuned o’r newydd yn ddiogel ar ôl Covid.

Beth yw prosiect Mentro Gyda’n Gilydd? Mae prosiect Mentro Gyda’n Gilydd wedi cael ei yrru gan anghenion pobl sy’n byw â dementia o fewn yr agenda adfer o’r coronafeirws. Maen nhw wedi creu fideo a thaflenni sy’n rhoi taith weledol i bobl trwy leoliadau a gwasanaethau cymunedol. Mae hyn yn rhoi cyfle i bobl ‘ymarfer’ ymweld â lleoedd yn y cnawd, gan leihau gorbryder, annog cynhwysiant, a lleihau ynysu.

Mae’r prosiect wedi cael ei arwain gan Arweinydd Proffesiynau Perthynol i Iechyd (AHP) Ymgynghorol Cymru Gyfan ar gyfer Dementia, yn cyfrannu at Agenda Adsefydlu ac Adfer Covid-19 ar gyfer Cymru AHP, ac yn alinio â Chynllun Gweithredu Cymru ar gyfer Dementia (2018-2022).

Mae Mentro Gyda’n Gilydd yn enghraifft o gydweithio cymunedol cenedlaethol a rhanbarthol, sy’n dangos gwaith partneriaeth cryf, gan sicrhau mai anghenion pobl sydd wrth wraidd y modd y mae iechyd a chymunedau yn dod at ei gilydd, gan gefnogi pobl sy’n byw â dementia i fyw yn dda.
