There are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK and this number is set to grow to over one million people by 2025. The financial cost of dementia in the UK is £23 billion each year and growing. The Dementia Action Alliance is a body of over 900 organisations which have all committed to transforming the quality of life for people living with dementia in the UK and the millions of people who care for them. Each member of the Dementia Action Alliance has signed up to the National Dementia Declarationwhich explains the huge challenges presented to our society by dementia and some of the outcomes that are being sought ranging from ensuring people with dementia have choice and control over decisions about their lives, to feeling a valued part of family, community and civic life.

In signing up to the Dementia Action Alliance Carefound Home Care has published its own set of plans setting out what its team will do to support people living with dementia in the Harrogate, Ripon and Wetherby area of North Yorkshire. The three key actions outlined include delivering a specialist dementia care programme through its collaboration with the Contented Dementia Trust; delivering excellent training and professional development for staff; and educating and raising awareness in local community.
