£50 million investment to give people with dementia specially designed care homes and wards
Dedicated funding to create care environments for people with dementia, which aid treatment by helping avoid confusion and keeping patients calm, was announced today by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
Up to £50 million will be available to NHS Trusts and local authorities working in partnership with social care providers to help tailor hospitals and care homes to the needs of those with dementia.
Improved designs of this kind have been shown to help dementia patients manage their condition better, by helping to reduce agitation and confusion.
