Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland's Living Well with Dementia Strategy 2019-2022

Closed 22 Jun 2018

Opened 19 Apr 2018


The key aim of the local Dementia Programme Board is to support people affected by dementia to live well in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

The board has drafted a new strategy showing the actions we intend to take. It reflects the national strategic direction and is informed by what people have told us about their experiences either as a person living with dementia or as a carer.

We aim to create a health and social care system that works together so that every person with dementia, their carers and families have access to and receive compassionate care and support not only before diagnosis but after diagnosis and through to end of life.

We also aim to improve access to diagnosis and support services for patients and service users from Black, Asian, minority ethnic and hard to reach groups.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like to know your views on the actions listed in the strategy.

The strategy is for everyone affected by dementia – people with a diagnosis of dementia, their families and carers, and people and organisations who work to support them.

When the consultation closes in June the Dementia Programme Board will update the strategy taking into account views that have been expressed. Each board member will support the strategy by developing their own action plan, based around their offer for people affected by dementia and their carers.

What Happens Next

Once the consultation period has ended, the responses will be analysed. The analysis may inform further changes to the strategy, after which it will be finalised and published.

Please note: Your responses to the main part of the survey may be released to the general public in full under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Responses to the 'About you' section of the questionnaire will be held securely and will not be subject to release under Freedom of Information legislation, nor passed to any third party.
