Memory loss and dementia is one of the long term conditions that has a high local priority for improving the range of support services available. People are being encouraged to go to their GP if they have a memory loss to seek an early diagnosis in order to reduce the likelihood of an unplanned crisis when they or their carers are not able to cope any longer.

We have a joint dementia strategy with Wiltshire Council and a joint action and commissioning plan for people with dementia for 2014-21 is available too.  The commissioning plan is always evolving and you can see it here.
