Department of Health and Social Care | May 2018 | After diagnosis of dementia: what to expect from health and social care services
A new report from the Department of Health and Social Care examines the role of advanced care planning and explores the barriers to its implementation as identified by people with incurable cancer and health and social care professionals. It also examines opportunities for change and sets out responsibilities of governments and policy makers.
This document is for anyone diagnosed with dementia and the people who care for them. It has details about what support they should get. It also includes information about:
- what is in a care plan
- how health care and social care services can help
- support available to family and friends who are carers
- how to take part in research
The full guidance is available to read from Department of Health and Social Care
