“Admission to hospital is exceptionally difficult for people with dementia. Illness or injury, loss of familiar surroundings and routine, and a busy task centred environment can all worsen dementia symptoms and increase the risk of delirium. The Alzheimer’s Society cites figures obtained from Department of Health stating that people with dementia in hospital account for around 3.2 million bed days a year. Governments in both England and Wales have identified dementia care in hospitals as a priority for improvement.” National Audit of Dementia in Hospitals Annual Report
