"As ladies have a tendency to live longer than men, they will probably live alone without a family carer to help them get to medicinal services," said Claudia Cooper, who drove the examination.

The uplifting news is that things appear to enhance: just 24 percent of patients had their weight observed in 2002 contrasted and 43 percent in 2013." 

Enhancements might be connected to the administration's National Dementia Strategy which propelled in 2009. 

Around the time this was propelled, GP surgeries were offered extra monetary motivations through the NHS Quality and Outcomes Framework to survey dementia patients every year.
