Dementia Care Level 2

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.

This qualification provides an appreciation and understanding of the different forms of dementia that may be encountered and how to support through person-centred care.
