People with Dementia and their Carers 

Strategy and Implementation Plan 2013-2015     


The following implementation plan provides a step by step approach to achieving the recommendations presented in the Integrated Needs Assessment (INA). This strategy should be used in conjunction with the INA and the local 2010 Living Well with Dementia Strategy.

The recommendations focus on organisations working together to help people identify dementia, get information, advice and support quickly, including diagnosis, as well as ensuring that Carers receive assistance. The recommendations focus around three key outcomes:

1. Driving a Herefordshire wide culture change through raising awareness and understanding

2. Increase availability of early diagnosis of Dementia and support 

3. Supporting people with dementia, carers and families to live well with dementia        here

Dementia Friendly Communities

Dementia friendly communities can be defined as:

Herefordshire Mental Health Needs Assessment 

“An integrated society where people with dementia live in ‘normal’ home-like situations

throughout their lives with support to engage in everyday community activities.” ix

The Local Government Association has developed guidance for local authorities in developing

Dementia friendly communities

. This identified that community could become more dementia capable


• increasing its awareness of dementia

• supporting local groups for people with dementia and carers

• providing more information, and more accessible information about local services and


• thinking about how local mainstream services and facilities can be made more accessible

for people with dementia.

Organisations have been signing up to the Dementia Action Alliance and ‘Dementia Friends’ - an

education programme for the public is available.
