What is this PAS about?

Around 850,000 people live with dementia in the UK, a number that’s expected to grow to a million by 2025. We need to create dementia-friendly communities to enable people to live as independently as possible, reducing stigma and social isolation. PAS 1365 gives recommendations on how to develop a dementia-friendly community.

Who is this PAS for?

 It's aimed at participants in a stakeholder engagement process, which may include:

  • Local dementia action alliances
  • Community groups and organizations
  • Health and social care organizations
  • Commissioners and local authorities
  • Businesses
  • Local and regional governments

Why should you use this PAS? 

 Government has assigned the Alzheimer’s Society the lead in driving the concept of dementia-friendly communities forward. The Society has introduced a recognition process for communities to support those that are working towards becoming dementia-friendly, which sets out seven criteria for communities to follow.

Stakeholders across the dementia sector are keen to ensure that communities and organizations treat this recognition process as a continuous improvement pathway for lasting change and on-going sustainability to embed dementia friendliness into society. The PAS covers:

  • Who should be involved
  • How to engage stakeholders in setting priorities
  • Areas for action with the community

Without setting a prescriptive checklist of what to do, each stakeholder group is encouraged to determine their own aims, considering the needs of people with dementia.
