Dementia

Click on the title for the link to the Audit Commission Report on dementia.

My own view is they have missed one of the central issues which is:

It is probably more than a century since we ceased calling Epilepsy a mental illness and treated that condition correctly as a physical neurological disorder. Dementia is also, unarguably, a physical neurological disorder and, in a civilised society, should be treated as such. This one simple change would mean the condition getting full and proper attention in the mainstream NHS and not have to lie partially neglected in the much neglected Cinderella sidestream which is mental health services.
