Dementia

Dementia affects over 800,000 people in the UK, mostly those over 65 years of age.

In North Somerset there are over 3,100 people living with dementia and, with the help of our partners such as North Somerset Council and the Alzheimer’s Society, we’re committed to improving the care and support that patients, carers and families receive.

Support for people with dementia

The North Somerset Dementia Pathway outlines what healthcare and support people with dementia can expect to receive locally, including support for carers and families.
