Dementia care

There are over 700,000 people on the UK with dementia and over the next 30 years this is expected to double. The Legion recognises the needs of beneficiaries for dedicated care for those suffering from dementia and for their carers.

The number of people with dementia is set to increase considerably over the next few years, which is why the Legion will be expanding its range of services to the elderly and vulnerable. Meeting the demand for dementia services is now more important than ever.
