The East Dunbartonshire Advisory Clinic Model: Better outcomes for people affected by dementia

Introduction

East Dunbartonshire is an area in Scotland where citizens generally enjoy a very good quality of life, with relatively low levels of unemployment and material deprivation.  One of the most significant social challenges facing East Dunbartonshire, however, is its ageing population. It is the Scottish local authority area with the highest proportion of older people. Some 21% of the local population are aged over 60 years old, and this is rising sharply (the population aged over 75years is set to increase by 71% by 2024).  There are an estimated 1,957 people living with dementia in East Dunbartonshire in 2013.  Read how the local council devised a new service model with third sector partners to respond to this challenge.
