Royal Borough dementia services have been recognised by the Alzheimer’s Society.
Windsor and Maidenhead was awarded Dementia Friendly Community status, allowing it to display ‘working to become dementia friendly’ symbols in buildings where staff have had dementia awareness training.
The council can also work with other community organisations and businesses who wish to be part of the initiative.
Cllr David Coppinger, cabinet member for adult services and health, said: “Attaining Dementia Friendly Community status is an important step forward.
“We’ll continue to work with our expert partners in the field of dementia to further improve services for affected residents.”
