Creating a dementia-friendly York

This report considers how York can become a more dementia-friendly city. While York is responding positively in many ways to the needs of people with dementia, there is still much to do to make sure that people can live well with dementia.

The report is timely in that it coincides with national interest in local communities sustaining their populations regardless of their needs, illnesses or conditions, and follows the implementation of the National Dementia Strategy and the Prime Minister’s own personal challenge to create more dementia-friendly communities. Report published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in October 2012. Summary also available. An accessible version of the main findings is also available.
