Dementia: Online Resources

Around 850,000 people in the UK live with dementia. That figure is forecast to reach 2 million by 2051. Many TSA members provide technology enabled care services (TECS) to support people with dementia, their carers and families. They can also provide useful advice about how cost-effective TEC can make a difference. To find out more about how TSA can help contact: Nathan Downing, TSA Associate -Social Care & Housing.
