Dementia Care

There are now nearly 850,000 people living within the United Kingdom with a diagnosis of dementia.

Some people who receive a diagnosis of dementia are able to live independently at home with support from a relative, friend or paid carer and may never need to go into a care home but for those that do, we want to make sure that the experience is as close as possible to the care that the person would have received at home.
