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.

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.
