Decision details

Cheshire East Place Dementia Plan 2023 - 2027

Decision Maker: Adults and Health Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


To approve the dementia strategy and receive the implementation plan.


The Committee considered a report which provided an update on the final version of the Cheshire East Place Dementia Plan. The engagement and co-production of the plan had continued since the draft version of the plan had been brought to Committee in January 2022.

Several gaps and issues had been identified in the plan and following the consultation process the draft plan had been amended. A positive proposal resulting from the consultation process was the training of Cheshire East Council staff and members. Those who had attended had found the training useful and informative.

Members raised concerns that the wording on page 14 of the Cheshire East Place Dementia Plan conferred blame, that if you got dementia it was due to the lifestyle factors listed. Officers confirmed that they would review the wording following members comments to ensure it was more user friendly.

Officers agreed that the revised plan would be circulated to committee members, and the fully costed implementation plan would come back to a future committee.

RESOLVED (Unanimously)

That the plan be adopted as the final version subject to the amendments outlined above.
