£50m funding for dementia patients25th October 2012
The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has earmarked a fund of £50 million to help create "calming environments" to treat people with dementia.
He said the fund would have a positive effect on dementia patients across Britain: "Being one of the best for dementia is a priority for this government, and doing what we can to help people with the condition feel more safe and secure in their environment is an important part of this. Responding with dignity and compassion to dementia is the only sensible reaction to the urgent challenges we face as our population ages."
