Businesses could lose billions as the "huge impact" of dementia is revealed, a new report warns.
Employees changing work patterns or even quitting due to the demands of caring is expected to increase dramatically as the number of sufferers rise, according to the report from Public Health England and the Alzheimer's Society.
Figures, from the Centre of Economics and Business Research, estimates that the cost of staff hours lost due to caring responsibilities is set to reach £3 billion by 2030.
Public Health England called on employers to adapt their working environment to support those affected by the condition.
