With one in three people aged over 65 going on to develop dementia, it is an issue which touches all of us. There are around 550,000 people in England acting as the primary carers for people with dementia, providing vital support to family members and friends. We know that carers of people with dementia experience greater strain and distress than carers of other older people.
The SouthWest Dementia SCN is proud to support the Carers Call to Action. By achieving the shared vision, the Call to Action will have a positive impact on people with dementia and carers and improve their quality of life.
