Coventry & Warwickshire's Living Well with Dementia Strategy Engagement Survey

Closes 31 Oct 2021

Opened 21 Sep 2021

Overview

The vision for Coventry and Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy 2022 - 2027 is that ‘everyone affected by dementia is enabled to live well’

Coventry and Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy 2022-2027 details the priorities that will help ensure that people with dementia, as well as their carers, receive the appropriate support, information, and advice along their journey with dementia. You can find the draft strategy at the bottom of this page in the 'Related Documents' section. The strategy will be supported by a delivery plan which will set out exactly what we will do over the next five years, to ensure that ‘everyone affected by dementia is enabled to live well’.  

We have developed the strategy based on a range of reviews, evidence and feedback, including the following:  

  • Review of progress of previous dementia strategies in Coventry and Warwickshire 
  • National guidance (including the Prime Ministers Challenge on Dementia, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, All Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia) 
  • Local evidence (Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, Alzheimer’s Society local dementia profiles, and other local strategies, e.g. Health and Wellbeing Strategy) 
  • Feedback from recent dementia specific and / or carer focussed engagement 
  • Recent feedback on dementia and carer services and support 
  • Review of dementia pathway 
  • Learning through COVID-19  

The strategy priorities are based on the Well Pathway for Dementia: 

NHS England Transformation Framework - The Well Pathway for Dementia. Preventing Well - risk of people developing dementia is minimised. Diagnosing Well - timely accurate diagnosis, care plan, and review within first year. Supporting Well - access to safe high quality health and social care for people with dementia and carers. Living Well - people with dementia can live normally in safe and accepting communities. Dying Well - people living with dementia die with dignity in the place of their choosing.

  • Priority One: Preventing Well (Reducing risk of developing dementia)
  • Priority Two: Diagnosing Well (Diagnosis of dementia and support straight after a diagnosis)
  • Priority Three: Supporting Well (Ongoing support for people with dementia and carers)
  • Priority Four: Living Well (Living well with dementia in dementia friendly communities)
  • Priority Five: Dying Well (Allowing people to die with dignity and respect)
  • Priority Six: Training Well (Training and awareness opportunities for carers and those working with people with dementia)
