Helping primary care to support people with dementia

Stockport Dementia Roadmap

Welcome to Stockport Dementia Roadmap

We provide high quality information about useful local and national resources and support groups that promote living well with dementia. Our main audience is people living with dementia and their carers, staff involved in the care for people with dementia and their carers and people worried about their memory.

About this Roadmap

The content on the Roadmap is organised into topics to reflect the Well Pathway for Dementia, developed by NHS England. The main topics of the Well Pathway include: Preventing well, Diagnosing well, Supporting well, Living well, Dying well, Caring well and an Underpinning topic containing sub topics that cut across the pathway. Each main topic contains sub topics and each topic page provides access to a collection of useful resources and support groups that are relevant to that topic and relevant to Stockport residents.
