Leve Two Certificate in the Principles of Dementia Care

Dementia affects around 820,000 people in the UK. This figure is likely to rise to one million by 2025 and two million by 2051. It is one of the main causes of disability in later life and with research being desperately underfunded, it costs the UK over £26 billion a year. Understanding dementia and the personcentred care that is required is fundamental to high quality care.
