2019 has been a significant year for Dementia United. So much of our work has progressed as the programme grows to maturity.
We can celebrate the progress we’ve made in strengthening care planning for post diagnostic support, working with partners to improve dementia awareness on public transport, challenging ourselves to spread standards based approaches to delirium, MCI and end of life care and seeing the potential of the lived experience barometer.
Next year promises to be busy as the programme transitions to locality ownership. We plan to bring localities together in the New Year to discuss how the transition will be managed. We want to ensure that the handover in 2021 works with their plans and priorities, and that the Greater Manchester level working and communication is sustained.
