Bromley council are looking to make the local area more dementia friendly.

Bromley council is attempting to understand the needs of local people suffering from dementia.

A survey is to be released, aiming to find out how dementia friendly Bromley shops are, how dementia affects a person’s social life, and look into dementia awareness in young people.

There are currently more than 800,000 people in the UK living with dementia, and Bromley’s executive councillor for care services, Robert Evans said: “Research tells us dementia is one of the biggest health crises facing England.

“With our health partners we are funding and working closely with experts in the field to improve the care and experience of those living with dementia in Bromley.”

The survey will be used to evaluate how dementia friendly the borough is for a conference at the end of November.

The survey closes on October 18, and is available here.
