Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer’s?

There are currently 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. Around 225,000 will develop dementia this year, which works out at one every three minutes. But what does this mean for those caring for dementia patients? Welfare Case Worker Karen Lane shares some advice.
