Home  >  Join us  >  Our course

About the course

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. This course is all about understanding dementia and the person-centred care that is fundamental to high quality care.
