Dementia programmes 

We work to improve:

  • post-diagnostic support
  • care co-ordination in the community
  • hospital care for people living with dementia

We have been working with health and social care dementia services to deliver dementia improvement programmes since 2016. Our work supports the Scottish Government dementia strategy for Scotland: Everyone’s story.
