Further work is underway to determine the costs and resource utilisation arising from dementia of all types. The total estimation will cover the personal and societal costs incurred by patients, their families and carers, and by national and local health and social care services. This study will cover the full dementia journey, from preceding pre-clinical stages, through to end of life.
