Scotland targets dementia workforce in initial 10-year strategy

Recruitment and retention of the dementia care home work force will be a key part of an initial two-year delivery plan for improved dementia care in Scotland.

Part of the 10-year Dementia in Scotland: Everyone’s Story strategy, launched in May 2023, this initial phase work will involve setting up a short life working group to identify gaps in the dementia care workforce, including learning and development.

Among other workstreams will be input from people living with dementia in care homes to understand the effectiveness of post-diagnostic support, as well as a public-facing campaign about dementia.
