The Birmingham Dementia Roadmap provides high quality information about the dementia journey alongside local information about services, support groups and care pathways to assist primary care to support people with dementia and cognitive impairment, their families and carers.
The content is organised into topics to reflect the journey with dementia, from understanding dementia and being worried about your memory through to the diagnostic process, post diagnosis support and living well with dementia. There are also topics on carer health and planning for the future.
