The West Kent 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 main audience is staff working in primary care, including GPs, nurses, dementia navigators and practice managers. The roadmap will also be of benefit to other professionals, people worried about memory problems, people living with dementia and their carers and families.
Our team at West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) hope you find the Dementia Roadmap useful. The site is designed for use by both healthcare professionals looking to support their patients and patients or families looking for information regarding a diagnosis of dementia and the journey post diagnosis. It is our aim to ensure that people living with dementia, their families and carers can access the right services at the right time and have all the information they need to maintain their health and independence for as long as possible’.
Dr Katie Collier, West Kent CCG Clinical lead for Dementia.
