Government guidance has made it clear that providing effective social care is as central to driving improvements for people with dementia as medical interventions.
Meeting the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge and improving quality of life requires a massive investment of positive energy from all areas of the social care community, especially in the drive to keep people healthy and living independently for as long as possible.
