It is fully recognised in the care that there are a growing number of people who now require support in one form or another. From family carer, domiciliary care providing home care to full nursing care in a specialised care home. As a part of this there are a growing number of people who are now being diagnosed with Dementia and this number is growing every day, putting pressure on existing services.
