The University of Bradford is the only university in the UK that offers its students the opportunity to study dementia care at a degree level, however, it has decided NOT to offer this valuable course to future students anymore from 2018 next year.
This means, there will be NO university in the whole of UK where students can study Dementia care at a degree level. This is very sad news for people living with dementia and their families and a step backwards in Dementia care in the UK.
Dementia is widely under diagnosed, and research suggest that, there are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This will soar to 2 million by 2051. (https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/info/20027/news_and_...)
