A staggering 850,000 people in the UK are currently suffering with dementia, a statistic that the Alzheimer’s Society say will grow over the next decade. It is forecasted that around 2 million people will have dementia by 2051 and it is currently estimated that approximately 1 in 3 people born in 2016 will become sufferers.
Clearly, dementia is a problem that isn’t going away; so given those figures, we need prepare both ourselves and our clients for the possibility that they will need the support of their family and loved ones if they become vulnerable.
