“The standard of care provided for people with dementia is “patchy”, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has said.
Some people with the condition were not getting even basic levels of care, it added. The warning came as NICE unveiled new standards for dementia care in England, covering issues such as housing and access to leisure services.”
NICE’s dementia guidance includes 10 standards it wants the care sector to follow.
One calls for people with dementia to live in housing that meets their needs, while another says they should be given the support they need to access leisure activities.
