1 in 10 dementia patients are spending over a month in hospital after being admitted.
Alzheimer’s Society chief executive Jeremy Hughes said “People with dementia are all too often being dumped in hospital and left there.
“Many are only admitted because there’s no social care support to keep them safe at home. They are commonly spending more than twice as long in hospital as needed, confused and scared.”
