The dementia debate

800,000 people across the UK are living with dementia. This week, at a summit in London, the G8 nations pledged to work together to tackle the condition.

In a debate for our political programme, Around The House, MPs acknowledged that society is 'playing catch-up' where dementia is concerned.

They agreed that improving care for people with dementia, and their carers, is a top priority.
