“Dementia is a time bomb ticking away. One in three people are affected by dementia either directly, with a relative or someone they know. Dementia is touching so many lives and it is so important to have better understanding of what people with dementia and their carers need so they can live with the dignity they deserve.
I have seen a lot of care homes and it’s a great pleasure to be back in my home city to see how it is leading the way to raise the standards of dementia care for the rest of the country to aspire to.”
