Dementia Care

Designed for people who are looking to enter into or progress within the health and social care sector, or with a personal interest.

Dementia  affects around 820,000 people in the UK. This figure is likely to rise  to one million by 2025 and two million by 2051. It is one of the main  causes of disability in later life and with research being desperately  underfunded, it costs the UK over £26 billion a year. Understanding  dementia and the person-centred care that is required is fundamental to  high-quality care.
