Helping primary care to support people with dementia

How living with dementia could be

September 2 2016

The care pathway for dementia can be difficult to understand due to the complexities of the disease. Any approach has to consider not just issues surrounding the person but also the carer and family, the community and the many services involved in caring and supporting the person with dementia.

This short animated video highlights how living with dementia could be through the ‘well pathway for dementia’. It shows the importance of a holistic partnership approach to supporting the person with dementia, their families and carers within local community settings.

The well pathway for dementia, also known as the five wells, includes:

  1. Preventing well
  2. Diagnosing well
  3. Supported well
  4. Living well, and
  5. Dying well

The animation was commissioned by NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group on behalf of Yorkshire and the Humber Clinical Network for dementia and has been developed by Inkwell Arts Media and Leeds Mind.
