with dementia and their families

people with any form of dementia and their carers

Examples of Good Practice
• People living in Central and West Lancashire have access to a
holistic pathway of support for both people with dementia and those
who support them
• The provision is in place in Greater Preston, Chorley and South
Ribble and West Lancashire.
• Funded by three Clinical Commissioning Groups with a sub contract
from Age Concern and a significant element of voluntary income
from Alzheimer's Society
• Key Features
– Dementia Advisor and Dementia Support Service in each of the
three areas
– An automatic referral from Memory Assessment Service which
means that anyone who receives a diagnosis in Central and
West Lancashire can be referred directly for the support they
need at the point of diagnosis and throughout their dementia
journey.
Hot Spots and Aspirations
• Diagnosis
– The increase in diagnosis rates in England is
welcome, but too many people are still living
without a formal diagnosis.
– Variation in diagnosis rates within England
remains extreme, ranging from around 40% in
some areas to over 60% in others. Similarly,
waiting times for specialist assessment vary
depending on where people live.
Variable quality of care
• Quality of care for people with dementia should be consistent
across all health and social care settings.
• 72% of respondents to our survey were living with another
medical condition or disability as well as dementia, which
increases the complexity of their care needs.
• People with dementia in hospitals stay on average five days
longer than people without dementia in a comparable situation
(Alzheimer’s Society, 2009).
• The UK Homecare Association estimates that 60% of
people receiving care at home have a form of dementia
(UKHCA, 2013) and 15-minute visits are still common
(UKHCA, 2012).
Progress towards building
dementia-friendly communities
• Projects are now underway across England with the ambition of
making our communities easier places for people affected by
dementia to access services, socialise and live well.
• Over 50 communities have signed up to the Dementia
Friendly Communities recognition process, and the Dementia
Action Alliance now has over 1,400 national members.
• The Dementia Friends campaign is raising awareness of
dementia, improving attitudes towards the condition and creating
a more dementia-friendly society by encouraging 1 million people
to become Dementia Friends.
• This is being delivered by Alzheimer’s Society in partnership
with Public Health England.
