Somerset dementia strategy

Somerset dementia strategy provides a framework to implement improved, responsive and quality services for people with dementia and their carers across Somerset.

The strategy is a partnership approach to ensure that a seamless service is provided. The implementation of this strategy will be phased over the next 3 years as it is recognised that within Somerset, dementia is a key priority for all agencies concerned.

The focus of the strategy is:

  • to raise awareness and understanding of dementia within the general public ensure there is early diagnosis, support and intervention for people with dementia and their carers
  • provide a higher quality of care to enable people to live well with dementia

The accompanying action plan outlines work underway to achieve the strategy objectives.
