Survey on Support after a Diagnosis of Dementia

To everyone living with dementia, their carers, families, and friends
Milton Keynes Council has made a commitment to make Milton Keynes a dementia friendly city. This means that we want Milton Keynes to be a good place for people with dementia to live, where their views are listened to and where they feel part of their community.

To help us to shape our community services for the future we want to understand what services would be of most value to you. We are not able to promise that we can deliver everything that people want but we will take account of your views when new community services are being introduced and it may be possible to change some of our existing services too.

Please fill out this Survey on Support after a Diagnosis of Dementia questionnaire so that your views become known to us. The survey is completely anonymous and confidential.

Our partners, Alzheimer’s Society and Healthwatch, are available on the phone to help you to fill out the survey, their phone numbers are on the questionnaire. Your service providers can also help you to fill in the survey.

Please return the questionnaire by the end of December 2021. We will then analyse the results in early January.

If you prefer, you can complete the online version of the Survey on Support after a Diagnosis of Dementia questionnaire.
