LifeCare’s response to the new dementia strategy

LifeCare provides a range of life-changing services and activities for people living with dementia. Through our high-quality care we deliver significant positive outcomes for people and communities. Thanks to our services local people experience improved mental and physical health, remain connected and are enabled to continue to live independently for as long as possible. Unpaid carers receive dedicated support and valuable respite opportunities.
Whilst we welcome the Scottish Government’s ‘Everyone’s Story’ strategy, and agree with the key principles of tackling stigma and allowing people to live well in their communities, the report does not go far enough. We urgently need access to long-term funding to allow organisations like LifeCare to deliver the services that matter to the growing numbers of people that are living with dementia.
The BBC Reporting Scotland team visited our St Bernard’s Club to report on the new strategy. They chatted with our incredible clients and carers who thrive thanks to our support.
