The Welsh Government are committed to providing support to people in Wales with dementia and their families. This includes supporting a number of initiatives including:

  • Dementia risk reduction
    Our revised ‘Dementia: reduce your risk guidance’ sets out the lifestyle choices individuals can take which could lessen the risk of developing dementia.
  • Dementia diagnosis rates
    We are taking action to improve dementia diagnosis rates in Wales, including extra training and support for primary care and care home staff.
  • Post-diagnostic support
    We will be funding new support workers across Wales to help those who have received a dementia diagnosis.
  • Care in general hospital settings
    We are supporting NHS Wales staff to ensure they have the knowledge and skills they need to provide the best care for patients with dementia.
  • Public awareness and supportWe will be providing further funding to the Alzheimer’s Society in Wales for their Dementia Friends/Dementia Supportive Communities campaigns.
