Where are we now?

There are currently around 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK1 in Cheshire West and Chester this stands at 4,600. With our ageing population profile this number is likely to increase. Latest population data predicts that those aged 65 years and over in Cheshire West and Chester will form 28 percent of our population in 2038, a change from 21 percent in 20182. The number of people aged 85 or above will more than double over the same period, increasing from 9,400 in 2018 to around 19,400 in 20382. Therefore preventing dementia, and providing support for those living with dementia and their carers is an important challenge for both the local authority and local health partners.
