Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group and Stockport Borough Council lead on the implementation of the Stockport Dementia Strategy, with crucial support from a regular network of dedicated Dementia champions working across health, social care and voluntary and community sector as well as people with lived experience of Dementia.
Stockport is estimated to have over 4000 people living with dementia, of which around two-thirds have received a formal diagnosis. Dementia prevalence rates in Stockport are higher than the national average.
Stockport already has a growing network of dementia peer support groups, including volunteer, third sector and user-led groups, offering support and opportunities to people with dementia and their carers. The intention is to further strengthen this network through the offer of additional support, greater collaboration and links with the wider community, leading to more dementia aware and supportive communities.
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.
