Healthy Ageing

Dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face in health and social care. There are approximately 18,000 people in south London diagnosed with dementia, with a further estimated 7,000 undiagnosed.

We’re focused on improving the lives of people with dementia through two priorities: by ensuring people receive the post diagnostic care and support they need, and through working with the independent residential care sector to ensure they’re offering great quality of care to residents with dementia.

We work in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders to develop and implement innovative ways of improving health outcomes for people with dementia, while working to share best practice across our network.
