Dementia United. Or: Making Greater Manchester the best place in the world for dementia care
"Dementia is one of the greatest health challenges facing the country and Greater Manchester at the moment. In Greater Manchester alone, it’s estimated there are currently over 30,000 people living with dementia. With an ageing population and rising numbers of people being diagnosed with dementia, there’s no question that it is a challenge that requires urgent attention."
"As part of the government’s historic devolution agreement, new decision making and spending powers are being given to Greater Manchester from April 2016. One of the early health and social care priorities for this work is dementia.
Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive of Salford Royal Foundation Trust and his team are leading a dementia transformation programme, ‘Dementia United’.
Over the next five years, through working with partners across Greater Manchester this work aims to improve the lived experiences of people with dementia, and reduce pressure on the health and social care system. In short, Dementia United is aiming to make Greater Manchester the best place in the world to live for people with dementia."
