  3. 3. Dementia costs the UK economy £23 billion per year . This is more than cancer (£12 billion per year) and heart disease (£8 billion per year) combined. How the £23 billion cost of dementia is met Long term institutional social care and informal care costs make up the majority of the £23 billion figure. Most of the cost of dementia - £12.4 billion per year - is met by unpaid carers. Social care costs are £9 billion, health care £1.2 billion and productivity losses £29 million 820,000 in the UK - The total number of people with Dementia in the UK is forecast to increase to 940,110 by 2021 and 1,735,087 by 2051, an increase of 38% over the next 15 years and 154% over the next 45 years.
