About this event 

Dementia is a rapidly growing health crisis in the UK, with projections indicating a staggering 1.7 million affected by 2040. As our population ages, urgent actions are needed to ensure accessible care and support services. The Government's Major Conditions Strategy aims to address these challenges, but issues such as unequal access to services and limited support for carers persist. The upcoming Dementia Care Conference in 2024 provides a crucial platform for experts, professionals, and advocates to collaborate and exchange ideas on improving dementia care. Join us to be part of this essential conversation.

Come and see how Person Centred Software's Services can help in your care homes
