Bolton Ambitions and Commitments to Dementia Care and Support

Bolton is estimated to have just over 3,000 people living with dementia, of which over two thirds have received a formal diagnosis. Bolton also has approximately 100 people under the age of 65 who are confirmed as living with young onset dementia.

Our aim is to deliver high quality services to support people living with dementia and their families and carers, which are accessible, adaptable, and responsive to local needs and demands. To do this, we work alongside several partners in health, social care, and the voluntary & community sector (VCSE).

Bolton is changing the way services are delivered to be more locally focused. As a result, support services are being adjusted to be focused on nine neighbourhoods and three districts within in the Borough. We provide information and advice on how to help prevent dementia, and detailed information about how to access support and services, so everyone can get the right care at the right time.

An early diagnosis opens the door to future care and treatment. Importantly, it helps people with dementia to plan ahead whilst they are still able to make important decisions on their future care and support needs, and on financial and legal matters. It also helps them and their families to receive practical information, advice, and guidance as they face new challenges.

If you are concerned that you or someone you know may have dementia, it is important to take action. Please speak to your GP initially to request a formal diagnosis.
