Living well with dementia in Dorset

Dorset Dementia Partnership


Dementia will be the most significant long term condition facing older people in future years. It is important to develop and implement an improvement plan that builds on current progress and good practice and importantly takes a whole system approach across health and social care.

The aim will be to build further on the dementia strategies both local and national to increase the identification and diagnosis of dementia and improve the care, treatment and support offered to people with dementia and their families and carers. 

This is a collaborative plan developed with a range of stakeholders and is a working document which will continue to evolve as further innovations develop.

The above are Borough of Poole documents from pre 1 April 2019 (unless otherwise stated). They have been adopted by BCP Council and will, in time, be replaced by BCP Council documents.

These documents apply to service users from the Poole locality and to staff carrying out functions that relate to these individuals. Minor changes may have been made to ensure contact information and website links are correct and relevant from 1 April 2019.

All policies will now be reviewed as part of a planned schedule, following the Borough’s transition to BCP Council on 1 April 2019.
