Public Health England (PHE) and the Alzheimer’s Society have launched a joint campaign to encourage people to become Dementia Friends. Employers are encouraged to make it easier for people with early dementia to remain in employment and to support working carers. PHE estimate that 50,000 carers will have to quit their job in 2014 and a further 66,000 staff will have to make adjustments to combine work with caring responsibilities.
