About the course

Dementia affects around 820,000 people in the UK. This figure is likely to rise to 1 million by 2025 and 2million 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.
