Knowsley Council is working with partners, businesses, and the local community to develop a strategy to make Knowsley a dementia friendly borough. The purpose of the strategy is to set out how, as a partnership, we will achieve this and what priority areas we will focus on to become a dementia friendly borough and ensure that people living with dementia and their carers can be supported better in our local community

We want to find out how people living with dementia are supported in Knowsley, what facilities or services they use, what helps them and what difficulties they experience. We would also like to collect the views of professionals working with people who live with dementia with dementia. Professionals can support this process in two ways:
  • By completing this version of the questionnaire
  • By encouraging and supporting service users to complete the alternative version prepared for people living with dementia and their carers
Do not forget to put any additional comments you may have in the comments box provided at the bottom
