MHF wants to improve dementia care

14th August 2009

But it is seeking help from organisations willing to take part in the initiative after evidence emerged of a low uptake of provision under the 2008 Health & Social Care Act, which gave an estimated 580,000 people with dementia in England and opportunity to choose their own care using direct payments.
