A £42,000 investment from Welsh Government will help PDR launch the ‘Dementia Enablement Service’ in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan in October 2015.

The new service looks to address the increasing demand on health and social care services from people with dementia by acting earlier. This service is for people under 65 who have been diagnosed with dementia but have a limited choice of services due to the stage of their dementia.

The service aims to shift users from expensive, face-to-face channels and onto more efficient digital channels such as email and online video.

This collaboratively designed new service will focus on what the individual can do as opposed to what they can’t, and aims to ensure that people who have dementia are able to maintain a high quality of life for longer.
