Dementia Friendly toolkit

This toolkit is one of the initiatives being introduced by the County Council to help improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers and should help our communities to become more inclusive.

Given the expected increase in the numbers of people with dementia over the next twenty years, local authorities have an important role in helping to develop dementia friendly communities that will support people in their homes and neighbourhoods.

How the toolkit can help businesses and organisations

All shops, other businesses and organisations have customers who already have dementia and over the coming years, more customers will develop dementia.

This toolkit has been written to give shops, other businesses and organisations some basic information that can help them to provide appropriate services to people with dementia.
