Helping primary care to support people with dementia

Recognised, valued and supported: Next steps for the Carers Strategy

December 3 2010

This strategy identifies the actions that the Government will take between 2011-15 to support its priorities to ensure the best possible outcomes for carers and those they support.

Four areas have been prioritised, the first three of which GP practices can clearly influence:

  • Supporting early self-identification and involvement in local care planning and individual care planning
  • Personalised support for carers and those receiving care
  • Supporting carers to remain healthy, and
  • Enabling carers to fulfil their educational and employment potential.
