Abstract

Current projections show that the number of people with dementia in the UK will more than double in less than forty years, with increasing costs for providers of health and social care. Under existing structures, people with dementia are more likely to be admitted to hospital with avoidable conditions, have longer hospital stays, experience more adverse events unrelated to their condition and have poorer clinical outcomes, often resulting in a discharge to a care home. Professor Graham Stokes, Director of Dementia for Bupa Care Services UK, will showcase Bupa’s pioneering work to transform the care of people living with dementia. As a leader in dementia care, Bupa is working in partnership with others to provide affordable and sustainable ‘whole person’ solutions, covering the full care pathway, and improving service users’ quality of life. He will be joined by Martin Knapp, Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics and director NIHR School for Social Care Research, and Josie Dixon, Research Fellow, London School of Economics.
