A new route to good dementia care

A new online tool to help people with dementia access care in their local area has been launched by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

Aimed at doctors and providers of community care, the Dementia Roadmap is a comprehensive “one stop shop” designed to reflect a patient’s needs as they progress through the disease and signpost them to relevant local resources at the right time, from diagnosis onwards.

Produced in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Society and funded by the Department of Health, the Dementia Roadmap provides a platform to help CCGs and other local organisations to bring together information for patients in their area for the first time, so that GPs can refer them to the best care to meet their needs as quickly as possible.
