Dementia Friendly Communities initiative

Dementia is an illness caused when parts of someone's brain stop working properly. The causes of this illness are not fully understood as yet.

There is no cure for dementia which gets more common with age. People who have dementia can often have a good quality of life for a number of years.

The Council has formally agreed to support the Dementia Friendly Communities initiative with the ambition that Staffordshire Moorlands becomes a Dementia Friendly Community.

To find your local support services for Dementia please contact the Alzheimer's Society.



Dementia Connect is a specialist service also provided by the Alzheimer's Society.

Telephone: 0333 150 3456 or ask your GP for a referral to Dementia Connect to be put in touch with a Dementia Advisor.
