    Due to changes to the official website, our method of fetching data for the
    Northern Ireland Assembly stopped working at the end of October. However, we
    have now managed to update our site to use the API the Assembly provides.
    This alert includes any Northern Ireland Assembly related information back to
    November, as well as the usual UK Parliament information from yesterday.

    Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Western Health and Social Care Trust: Impact of Cuts on the Omagh Area (9 Dec 2014)
    http://www.theyworkforyou.com/ni/?id=2014-12-09.8.1&s=dementia#g8.53
    Jim Wells: I will reflect on that. Members have also expressed concern
    about the proposals relating to Ash Villa, a 20-bed unit that provides
    short-term treatment for people with *dementia*. It is important to
    realise that this is not a reduction in service to make savings but part
    of a redesign of older people's mental health services across the
    Western Trust. *Dementia* care is an important issue...

    http://www.theyworkforyou.com/ni/?id=2014-12-02.4.15&s=dementia#g4.24
    Barry McElduff: ...health trusts at director level be compelled to
    participate in the community planning process? I say that because,
    recently in Omagh, negative proposals came forward regarding palliative
    care and *dementia* care that would never have seen the light of day if
    local elected representatives had been alongside health chiefs in
    decision-making.

    Rosaleen McCorley: ...in circumstances in which they sometimes find
    themselves vulnerable and, as has happened, accused of theft without
    there being any real bad intention? Sometimes, it is when they are
    dealing with clients with *dementia* or older people. How are staff
    supported in those circumstances?
