Service description:
In Northamptonshire it is believed that some 7,000 people suffer from dementia; by 2025, this figure is expected to have increased by 50%. However, less than half of those affected by the condition are known to GPs or Adult and Children’s Services.
What are we doing in Northamptonshire?
We are working with partners in the NHS and third (voluntary) sector to deliver improvements to the services available for people with dementia and their carers. The National Dementia Strategy ‘Living Well with Dementia’ sets out priorities for action and we are acting on them locally in a number of ways.
We intend to:
- Improve awareness and education about dementia
- Ensure that more people receive an early diagnosis so that they can access the help they need quickly
- Improve information, support and advice, through services such as the Dementia Care Advisors
- Work with partners to develop new services within the community for people with dementia, such as day centres and cafes
- Expand and improve specialist services
- Increase support for carers
- Ensure that people can access Telecare and domiciliary support to help them stay safe, healthy and happy within their own homes
- Improve the experience of people with dementia if they need to go into hospital
- Ensure that residential and nursing care fully meets the needs of people with dementia
How do you get support?
If you, a friend or relative are affected by dementia please contact the Dementia Care Advisors.
