16. Notice of Motion proposed by Alderman McCandless, seconded by Councillor Wilson (referred from 7 April 2020 Council Meeting)

"that his Council notes that according to the London School of Economics there are currently over 22,000 people living with dementia in Northern Ireland, this figure is projected to nearly double to 42,800 by 2040 and the cost to the economy of dementia in 2040 will be over £1 billion.  This Council calls on the Minister for Health to ensure a universal and comprehensive approach across all Health Trusts in Northern Ireland for people following a dementia diagnosis and urges his Department to #FixDementiaCare by reforming Adult Social Care funding to address the costs faced by the growing number of people with dementia and their families.  This Council will build on Alzheimer’s Society work of creating Dementia Friendly Communities by hosting a ‘Dementia Friendly workshop’ which will increase the awareness and confidence of our staff to better relate to, support and communicate with people with dementia to help tackle stigma, establish best practice and reduce barriers for our ageing population.”
