Abstract
This latest update reports that care for people with dementia is not meeting their needs as services are struggling to cope. The second Care Update report also highlights concerns around the quality of services for people with mental health issues and learning disabilities.

Once there, they are more likely to stay longer, be readmitted or die than those without dementia
