Dementia Review Strategy
Fife Health and Social Care Partnership (a partnership between Fife Council and NHS Fife) is seeking your views on its approach to support people living with dementia to live well for longer.
The last strategy covered a 10 year period from 2010 to 2020. The previous strategy included a series of realistic and achievable service improvements and developments with the aim to better meet the needs of people living with dementia and their carers.
The number of people whose life is affected by dementia has increased since the last strategy was published and is forecast to continue to increase by a third over the next 10 years. The increase in demand for support from people living with dementia, and those unpaid carers who support them, must be balanced against the call demand on the public resources that are available.
Together we need to decide what will make the greatest difference to those living with dementia. It’s for this reason that FHSCP needs to hear your voice as the new strategy is developed.
Your responses to this questionnaire, together with the feedback from a range of other public engagement exercises, will influence the improvement and investment priorities in Fife’s next dementia strategy. This is your chance to let key partners know what matters most to you, what will make a positive and lasting difference to your experience of living with dementia or caring for someone who does.
What is your experience of dementia and dementia support in Fife? What do you feel will be most important to you in the future? Your opinion really matters. What should Fife do to improve support for those who have direct experience of dementia?
Your response will remain confidential and will be used only for the purpose of informing the development of the Dementia Strategy. All questions are optional and you do not have to answer questions that you feel uncomfortable with.
