Glasgow publish new framework to improve dementia services in the city

Glasgow City Council, working alongside Alzheimer Scotland, has announced the development of a framework to support high quality dementia services and help create a dementia friendly Glasgow.

The so-called ‘Glasgow City Dementia Strategy’ aims to support approximately 8,000 people are living with dementia in city and 340 people are living with early onset dementia (those who are diagnosed with dementia under the age of 65.)  

The emerging Health and Social Care Partnership is committed to improving the landscape of dementia care and services in the city and this strategy is outlining the benefits that the partnership will bring.

The Strategy has been informed by consulting with a wide range of stakeholders with personal experience of dementia, professionals from the voluntary, independent, private and public sectors and community groups.

The Council’s vision is that, ‘People affected by dementia in Glasgow will be able to live well, be included and have access to the right support at the right time.’ It sets out what a dementia friendly Glasgow looks like and how it can be achieved, along with examples of good practice throughout the city.
