Abstract

The rising demographics of people living with dementia amount to an estimated 821,8841 (Luengo‐Fernandez et al, 2010) The cost of providing care and treatment to these people is marked; the cost of long‐term care alone amounts to an estimated £9 billion per year in social care and health care costs are estimated to be about £1.2 billion ‐ of this, hospital inpatient admissions amount to 44% of the total (Luengo‐Fernandez et al, 2010, p7) These figures are expected to rise over the next 20 years and will, over this unfolding timeframe, pose significant challenges to those tasked with commissioning health and social care services within the public and private sectors. The nature of those challenges will be explored and discussed further in this short article.
