I’m Still Me, a narrative for coordinated support for older people

I’m Still Me – the second of four extensions to the Narrative for Coordinated Care – was developed by older people working with UCLPartners, National Voices, Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society, British Geriatrics Society and others.  It provides a framework showing what matters most to older people, and how services can be designed around their individual needs. I’m Still Me is based on research including interviews with older people and extensive testing of the original, ‘generic’ narrative statements with both older people and their professionals. The final resource reaffirms that the original Narrative is a good guide to bringing coordinated services together around the person; but it particularly challenges healthcare providers to work with others to achieve wider outcomes related to independence and wellbeing.
