The Dementia Care Fund has been set up to raise awareness and funds to help support and care for people living with dementia being treated at UCLH – and their families and carers.
Dementia affects 850,000 people living in the UK. When people with dementia are admitted to a busy acute hospital like UCLH, it can be a very distressing time with new surroundings and unfamiliar faces. At UCLH we care for a great number of patients every week who are living with dementia.
This fund has been set up to support projects which will help to alleviate the stress of staying in a strange, unfamiliar environment. It also provides funding for resources for health professionals to use when caring for people with dementia, giving staff the opportunity to provide ‘above and beyond’ normal day-to-day care.
Your support can make a real difference – so thank you.
