Councillor Liz Fairhurst, Hampshire County Council’s Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health, said: “It is vital that we support the county’s carers and those living with dementia in the best way possible. People need to be able to access help quickly and easily, so we have brought together the various support services that were previously provided separately by the County Council and our Health partners. By doing this, we are using our collective resources in a much more effective way to support Hampshire’s more than 133,000 adult carers and the approximately 12,400 residents known to be diagnosed with dementia.”
