South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership Dementia Strategy 2018-2023

The Health and Social Care Partnership has developed a draft Dementia Strategy for the period 2018-2023 and would like to hear your views. The draft Strategy sets out key strategic outcomes identified through discussions with service users’ representatives, carers, staff, and the South Ayrshire Dementia Strategic Planning Group. The Strategy identifies that support will be designed and delivered in ways that:

  • promote preventative activity
  • will ensure that people with dementia get access to appropriate and timely interventions
  • address environmental issues to better support people with dementia
  • examine how care pathways might be adapted to better support those with dementia
  • provide options in the way people can choose to receive support;
  • ensure that the needs of carers are fully considered; and
  • protect people with dementia from harm

The consultation closed on 26th July 2018.
