Alzheimer’s Society’s fourth annual report
Dementia 2015: Aiming higher to transform lives is Alzheimer’s Society’s fourth annual report looking at quality of life for people with dementia in England. It contains the results of their annual survey of people with dementia and their carers, and an assessment of what is currently in place and needs to be done to improve dementia care and support in England over the next five years.
Now is the crucial turning point for dementia, and the government’s commitment to dementia needs to be met by a fully-fledged national action plan for the 2020 challenge.
Their report provides a snapshot of how well people are living with dementia, what support they are receiving and what barriers they face to living well. It makes practical recommendations to the new government on the steps that need to be taken to make quality of life better for people with dementia.
