Dementia care

3. Dementia Friendly Communities

Dementia Friendly Communities is one of the three challenges set out in the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia. This aims to support people with dementia to live well and engage with their communities.

By raising awareness and making some small changes, the aim is that people with dementia and their carers, will be better supported to stay involved with their communities.

Stockport Council is working with Stockport’s Dementia Champion network:

  • EDUCATE (Early Dementia Users Co-operative Aiming to Educate)
  • the Alzheimer’s Society
  • the Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) on the creation of Dementia Friendly Communities in Stockport.
