Bridgwater Dementia Action Alliance

Achievements

Registered as a Dementia Friendly Community

Aim:

To raise awareness and create a dementia friendly community in Bridgwater.

This will be achieved by tackling specific areas of the community by tailoring the support offered to meet their needs:

  • People living with dementia  and their carers
  • Businesses
  • Community groups
  • The general public

Specific goals:

  • To develop a successful regional alliance for Bridgwater
  • To ensure it feeds into the National Alliance and existing local structures.
  • To establish an Alliance Steering Group to oversee and ensure continued development of action plans.
  • To initially identify key organisations including businesses, voluntary, community, private sector and education across the region with a common intent.
  • To secure commitment from these organisations to support the alliance.
  • To ensure organisations commit to producing action plans against which they will report progress over time.
  • To identify further sources of funding to support the ongoing sustainability of the Alliance.

Our dementia friendly community in Bridgwater will demonstrate public awareness and understanding so that people living with dementia and their carers are encouraged to seek help and are supported by their community.

 Background:

The dementia friendly communities’ programme focuses on improving the inclusion and quality of life of people with dementia. In these communities: people will be aware of and understand more about dementia; people with dementia and their carers will be encouraged to seek help and support; and people with dementia will feel included in their community, be more independent and have more choice and control over their lives.
