An introduction to people with dementia
Dementia is one of our national priority areas, along with care and support at home and children who are looked after.
We know that things need to be done to improve social care for people living with dementia, including making sure people can find the care and support they need in rural communities, and using Welsh where it is people’s first language.
One in a Million: Dementia Training Resource
