Dementia care is broken. Will you help fix it?

For people living with dementia, hospital visits can become part of everyday life.

Alzheimer’s Society has found far too many examples of shockingly dangerous and inadequate care in hospitals. Patients left disorientated and frightened, their basic needs neglected, or injured by preventable falls. Often staff do not have the training or information they need to look after their patients properly, leading to increased anxiety, extended stays and worsening health problems.

The quality of care in hospitals varies so much around the country that people are gambling with their health and wellbeing. They have no way of knowing what care will be like before they arrive in hospital.

We’re campaigning to end this lottery of care. We want all hospitals to publish an annual ‘dementia statement’ setting out the quality of dementia care they provide. This will arm patients with information about their local hospital and drive improvements throughout the system.

What can you do?
