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.
The council and CCG 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. The council and CCG 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 is hoped to publish in the summer of 2016.
