Dementia Strategy 2019-2024
Herefordshire and Worcestershire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy 2019-2024 has been developed in partnership with local health, social care and the voluntary and community sector. An important focus of our strategy is to move towards delivery of personalised and integrated care.
Early diagnosis and access to support for those living with dementia and their carers remains a priority for Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Our Strategy sets out the Herefordshire and Worcestershire ambition to support people to live well with dementia. It reflects the national strategic direction outlined in The Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia which details ambitious reforms to be achieved by 2020. The Strategy is informed by what people have told us about their experiences either as a person living with dementia or as a carer and is written for those people; specifically those with memory concerns, those with a dementia diagnosis, their families and carers, communities and organisations supporting them.
