Dementia – A Growing Issue:
There are over 800,000 people in the UK suffering from dementia, with 80 percent of people living in care homes suffering from some form of dementia or severe memory problems. It’s therefore essential that carers are equipped with the skills necessary to cope with the high demands of dementia care.
