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.
