    Mortality rate rises in over-90s driven by dementia, ONS shows

    17.08.18 Mortality rates for “mental and behavioural disorders such as dementia” have increased sharply, says the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in life expectancy figures released this week. The ONS said the rise in mortality rates overall for people aged 90 or more was driven by the rise in dementia deaths. But the ONS said there were other factors as well, such as increased reporting of deaths from dementia because the condition is better understood, diagnosis rates have gone up, and the coding framework for cause of death has changed to make it more likely that dementia will be recorded as the cause.

    Dementia UK director raises concerns about “fractured” care system

    16.08.18 Dementia UK’s new director of clinical services Paul Edwards made headlines on the Express newspaper’s website – “Dementia UK director slams ‘fractured’ care system – ‘the government has SO much to do.’” He is quoted as saying that people with dementia are struggling to find their way around a fractured care system and that there is too much variation between regions. He says: “From being tied up by bureaucracy which delays the support a family receives even further, to the variance in regional dementia care and support, it’s reached the stage where many people just don’t know where or who they can turn to in order to address their often complex needs. If we want a society that views, understands and responds to the issues that dementia brings then frank, open and receptive conversations need to be spearheaded by MPs.
