Improving knowledge of dementia care is key to improving quality of life

The process of continuing healthcare within the NHS can be a lengthy process which most families who are supporting a loved one with dementia do not completely understand.

Dementia UK are asking for an improved and revised CHC system which allows families to spend more time with their loved one than in the process.

“Dementia may be a hidden condition, but it is up to assessors to see the humanity behind every decision they are making- the human cost is immeasurable if they do otherwise” says Dr Hilda Hayo, CEO Dementia UK.
