Dementia Strategy consultation

​This consultation is now closed.

Background

This strategy sets out the strategic framework for reducing the risk of dementia (or delaying its onset) and enabling people living with dementia and their carers to live well, in Cheshire West and Chester.

We are clear about the responsibility that Cheshire West and Chester Council and our partner organisations have in shaping the best health and social care support and services for our residents who affected by dementia. This includes not only those with a diagnosis of dementia, but also their carers, families and friends. Together, we want to build a collective response to the challenges facing us.

 

Our vision for this strategy is:
  • ‘to create a borough which supports and is inclusive of people with dementia and their carers so they can enjoy the best possible quality of life and remain independent longer. We will do this by working with communities and those with, and affected by dementia, to improve support and services thereby ensuring there are opportunities to enable healthy, safe and fulfilling lives’
We are also consulting on our Falls Prevention Strategy. If you are interested in commenting on this Strategy too, please visit the Falls Prevention Strategy consultation page:
