Dementia: A state of the nation report on dementia care and support in England sets sets out what is known about dementia care, support and research. It highlights where improvements are being made and where progress can be seen – it also shows where improvements are needed, including where better data is necessary.

It assesses the scale of the challenge of dementia and also looks at:

• prevention
• diagnosis
• living with dementia
• dementia education and training
• dementia friendly communities
• research

The report supports an interactive map where people can see data about dementia care in their area and across the country.
