Improving Dementia Care

13 March 2019 - , London



In response, the Government set out the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia. The Challenge is currently in its second phase, from 2015 to 2020. It promised  to deliver major improvements in dementia care and research, and made a commitment to make England “the best country in the world for dementia care and support and for people with dementia, their carers and families to live, and the best place in the world to undertake research into dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases” (Department of Health 2015). The implantation plan that followed aimed to improve quality of life through four main areas: risk reduction, health and care, dementia awareness and social action and research.

Despite these measures, issues still remain. People with dementia have difficulties accessing health and care, and are thus forced to face the impact of the condition alone. Costs are set to rise with the ageing population, and approximately two thirds of the £26 billion costs of dementia to the UK are taken on by those affected by dementia. Alzheimer’s Society UK reports that 1/3 of homecare workers have had no dementia training (2018).

With the Challenge on Dementia 2020 close to completion, this timely symposium offers an invaluable opportunity to assess the progress made in implementation, consider the priorities for the second phase, and examine the how to strengthen local partnership working to improve support and services for people with dementia and their carers.
