First paragraph:
Dementia is the leading cause of death in the UK and it is estimated that by 2040, 220,000 people with dementia will die each year in England and Wales (Etkind et at, 2017). People with dementia often do not die in their own homes; most will come to the end of their life in care homes or hospitals, meaning that their care at the end of their lives is everyone’s business. Given that most people will have multiple chronic health conditions alongside their dementia, a multidisciplinary approach is vital.
