Herefordshire and Worcestershire Living Well with Dementia Strategy

To approve and support the contents of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Living Well with Dementia Strategy (HWLWD) and approve the high level actions set out for 2019-2024.

 

Over the last five years the delivery of dementia care in Herefordshire and Worcestershire has evolved into a multi-agency approach with each county having separate strategies.

 

As strong as our foundations are, we know that we have more to do to ensure we provide timely diagnosis and that people with dementia and their carers get the right support whatever their individual circumstances.

 

We must continue to strive towards becoming more dementia friendly as a wider community. Our ambition is to ensure that people at whatever stage of their condition are given the best opportunity to live well, remain active, feel valued and connected within their family and community.

 

The 2019-2024 strategy sets out a shared vision for a collaborative approach across both counties It will build upon the successes of our local dementia partnerships delivered by a wide range of local stakeholders who are key to supporting people living with dementia, their family, friends and communities.
