“Dementia is a time bomb ticking away. One in three people are affected by dementia either directly, with a relative or someone they know.

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.”
