More than one in ten people living with dementia in Wales have to go into care when they could still be cared for at home, the Alzheimer's Society warns.
It says people aren't necessarily aware of the support that's available, or don't seek help early enough.
Home means something special to all of us. Many people living with dementia have been forced to leave their safe-havens which is unacceptable.
