"The total number of people with dementia worldwide in 2015 is estimated at 47 million. Among them, 60% live in low- and middle-income countries, and this proportion is projected to rise to 71% by 2050."
"Around half of all people with dementia need personal care (and the others will develop such needs over time). Around half of all older people who need personal care have dementia, while four-fifths of older people in nursing homes are people with dementia."
"The current annual societal and economic cost of dementia is US $818 billion, and it is expected to become a trillion dollar disease in just three years’ time."
"Person-centred care comprises: involving the service user; taking into account their individual needs, and their views as to how those should be met; and providing flexible and responsive services. The approach is applicable and relevant throughout the journey of care."
