About the service

Dementia affects over 800,000 people in the UK, mostly those over 65 years of age.

In North Somerset there are over 3,100 people living with dementia and, with the help of our partners, we’re committed to improving the care and support that patients, carers and families receive.

We provide support, information and resources for people with dementia and their carers, as well as providing training to our staff.

The Dementia Action Alliance (DAA)

We are a member of the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA); an organisation committed to transforming the lives of people with dementia, as well as their carers.

We are also committed to the National Dementia Declaration which sets out our objectives to transform the quality of life for people affected by dementia, their friends, families and carers. 

 

Our aim is to:

  • Find meaningful ways of involving people with dementia, their carers, families and friends, in improving our services
  • Challenge the stigma associated with dementia amongst staff and the wider community and develop values, attitudes and strategies that support people with dementia, their carers, families and friends
  • Enable people with dementia and their carers, families and friends to access up-to-date information about dementia and know how to participate in research if they wish
  • Make Clevedon Community Hospital a dementia-friendly hospital.

The North Somerset Dementia Roadmap provides information about the dementia journey alongside local information about services, support groups and care pathways, to support people with dementia, their families and carers.
