Template Action Plan to Improve Care for People with Dementia in the Community (Department of Health)


This template action plan was released as part of the Dementia Commissioning Pack in mid-2011, but was not catalogued as a separate document in sufficient detail at the time. The action plan can be used by local authorities and commissioning consortia working together under Health and Wellbeing Boards to improve care for persons with dementia who live either in their own homes or in any other residential setting. It specifies:

  • A commitment to providing leadership and resources at Board level.
  • A review of current services to identify services which could be made more dementia friendly.
  • Identification of four priorities for improved service provision for people with dementia and their carers.
  • Analysis and development of approaches to training and support for people who care for persons with dementia (carers, domiciliary care workers, care-home staff).
