Better care together

Dementia

During 2014-15, we worked with our local authority partners, supporting the development of local authority services for people with dementia and their carers. These services provide advice, information and support to help people with dementia and their carers to maintain their independence and to continue to live at home.  Details of these can be found here

Moving forward into 2015-16, we are undertaking a number of further initiatives to increase our work in this area.  This section of our website will be providing details as these come on stream.  They include:

Supporting the Dementia Friends campaign – to help people develop an understanding of dementia and turn it into action to help people in their community living with the disease.

Launching our Dementia Champions Award

Developing a Dementia Action Plan (details to follow in due course) covering such things as

  • Increasing Diagnosis in practices
  • Care Planning
  • Post-Diagnostic Support
  • Dementia Educations for Primary Care Clinicians and practice staff;
  • Video, web and social media support;
  • Resources, bulletins and information packs.
