Share your views on the stroke and dementia services that are currently provided in North Lincolnshire to help identify if changes need to be made in the future.

Supporting people and their carers who live with dementia and stroke is a priority for North Lincolnshire Council to enable people to be independent and live well with their conditions.

The Alzheimer’s Society and The Stroke Association are currently commissioned by the council to provide information, guidance and support to local people living with dementia and the impact of stroke.

Both of these services are being reviewed to make sure the right service is being delivered at the right time by the right people.

To help us with this, we want to hear from:

  • Anyone who has had a stroke or has a diagnosis of dementia
  • Carers who look after people who have had a stroke or a diagnosis of dementia
  • Anyone who has used the information, guidance and support services from The Stroke Association or The Alzheimer’s Society (including people with long term conditions, their family members or carers)
  • Stakeholders who provide services to people with dementia/stroke

Your views will help shape these services in the future to ensure they meet the needs of people using them.

It will only take a few minutes of your time to complete the survey and will make a real difference.

Have your say by completing the online survey.

You have until 21 January 2019 to have your say.

Cllr Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for Adults, Health and Wellbeing, said:

“The dementia and stroke services in North Lincolnshire are being reviewed to ensure they meet people’s needs and are delivered in the right way. The only way we can do this is by hearing from those who have used the services or from people who would potentially use them.

“We are committed to providing the right health and wellbeing support and information to enable people to live independently and well.

“Please let us know what you think of both services to help us shape the services for the future.”
