In Newcastle Upon tyne, 2.6% of the population is aged over 85, and this is due to climb by 3.5% by 2036, according to Age UK. Meanwhile, the Government Office for Science predicts the population of over 75s will increase significantly in the region up to 2037, with numbers aged 85 plus more than doubling.
The Alzheimer’s Society says that there are over 30,000 people with dementia in the North East and that this figure will grow to more than 40,000 by 2021.
These statistics combined, point to a significant and growing need for high- quality care – yet the charity Coram Family and Childcare Older People’s Care Survey
2018 reported just 44% of local authority representatives in North East saying that there was enough care provision to meet demand, a decrease from more than 56% in 2017.
These factors demonstrate the demand for operators such as Qualia.
