Promoting living well with dementia across Wales

Torfaen Dementia Roadmap

The Torfaen Dementia Roadmap provides high quality information about the dementia journey alongside local information about services, support groups and care pathways to support people to live well with dementia.

We support dementia friendly communities in which people with dementia are empowered to have high aspirations and feel confident, knowing they can contribute and participate in everyday activities that are meaningful to them. Find out more about dementia friendly communities.

The content on the Roadmap is organised into topics to reflect the dementia pathway. The main topics include: Understanding dementia, Worried about your memory, Diagnostic process, Post diagnosis support, Living well with dementia, Carer health and Planning for the future. Each main topic contains sub topics and each topic page provides access to a collection of useful resources and support groups that are relevant to that topic.

In addition to browsing through the topics we offer a range of tools to help you find what you need:

We would like to hear your views about the Dementia Roadmap. Please spare a few minutes to complete our brief feedback form.
