This page on the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA)‘s website clarifies Wolverhampton’s Joint Dementia Strategy.
“The Joint Dementia Strategy developed by Wolverhampton City Council and Wolverhampton City Primary Care Trust sets out how the city will meet the objectives identified by the National Dementia Strategy. It has four key priorities: to ensure good-quality early diagnosis and intervention, improve the quality of life for patients in general hospitals, help people live well with dementia in care homes and reduce the use of medication”.
Developing Dementia Friendly Wolverhampton
“Wolverhampton has signed up to the Dementia Action Alliance and has taken up the Challenge on Dementia laid down by the Prime Minster and aims to create a city where people with dementia are better understood and offered the help and support they need”. (p.2)
