Dementia is a term used to describe a collection of symptoms that include problems with memory, self-care, reasoning and communication. Care interventions that focus on preserving people's dignity and identity are therefore essential.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common progressive neurological condition. There are 127,000 people with the disease in the UK, that is, one in every 500 of the population.
