PRINCIPLES OF DEMENTIA CARE
FULLY FUNDED NATIONALLY RECOGNISED & ACCREDITED LEVEL 2 QUALIFICATION
Dementia affects around 820,000 people in the UK. This figure is likely to rise to one million by 2025 and
two million 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.
