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 informative regarding the help and advice you may be seeking. An early diagnosis can be important as treatments can now help many patients maintain better health and independence for longer. Equally, the support offered to patients, family and carers and ability to access services makes a vital positive difference too and so we hope you find the information within this roadmap supports the needs you have.
