Specialist Dementia Units

Aim: To improve the quality of care, experience and outcomes for people with dementia, staff and carers within specialist dementia units; to improve the knowledge and understanding of improvement tools and methodology to support local improvements; and to increase the confidence and resilience in using these improvement approaches


We will achieve this by:

  • working with four demonstrator sites across Scotland using an experience-based co-design approach to understand improvement priorities and work in partnership with sites to support improvement activity and sharing of learning.
  • developing and facilitating a network for specialist dementia unit staff across Scotland to share practice and learning in order to reduce variation and improve quality of care and support.
