Dementia care: Having this a person’s of loss and dementia

Dr Sanna Read, from LSE’s Care  and Policy and Evaluation Centre said: “In some ways our findings are good news since improving  older people’s social contact as a way to prevent or slow decline is easier than if it were the other ways around.

“And finding any preventable factor that can improve people’s later lives is especially important since there is currently no cure for serious loss, such as experienced by someone with dementia.

“Social contact is hugely important for older people, not just to stem the tide of the loss, but for overall well-being.

“With population changes, fewer people are having children and more people are living alone and it’s important that we look at what can be done to tackle this issue.”
