Overview

What is dementia?

It’s an umbrella term for a range of progressive disorders affecting the brain, the most common are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.

There is a national aspiration that by 2020, England will be the best country in the world for dementia care and support, and for people with dementia, their carers and families to live, and the best place in the world to undertake research into dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.

What is Richmond doing about dementia?

Richmond Council and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have developed a Joint Dementia Strategy bringing together information about all the existing services for people with dementia and their carers in Richmond into one place. This Joint Strategy also explores how the Council and CCG propose to develop and improve these services.

We would like your feedback on the content of the Joint Strategy, which has five main areas:

  • Preventing well: the risk of people developing dementia is minimised
  • Diagnosing well: timely diagnosis, integrated care plan and review within the first year
  • Living well: people with dementia can live normally in safe and accepting communities
  • Supporting well: access to safe, high quality health and social care for people with dementia and carers
  • Dying well: people living with dementia die with dignity in the place of their choosing

 

Have your say

This is your opportunity to help shape the development of dementia services in Richmond. We would particularly like to hear the views of:

  • People with dementia and their carer
  • Local service providers
  • Commissioners of health and social care services

 

Your feedback will be used to inform the final Joint Dementia Strategy for Richmond which we hope to publish in the summer of 2016. Have your say and complete the online survey below before the closing date 20th May 2016.

You can also request a paper copy by calling 020 8831 6183 or emailing publichealth@richmond.gov.uk

Please read the draft Joint Strategy before completing the survey.
