The Dementia Evidence Toolkit is for commissioners, care providers, people working in health and social care and people with dementia and their families.

The toolkit has two resources:

An intervention is something that aims to make a change and is tested through research. For example this might be giving a medical treatment or drug, providing a counselling or care service, improving a person’s environment or giving people information and training.

The summaries look at:

  • What the intervention is
  • Why is it important for people with dementia and family carers?
  • Does it work?
  • Is it value for money (is it cost effective)?
  • How much does it cost?

The toolkit will help those planning and shaping services and treatments for people with dementia and their carers make informed decisions about which services and treatments to provide and how much they cost.
