After working as a pharmacist for nearly 40 years and caring for his mother, who had dementia, Roger Walker understands the challenges that people affected by the condition can face. He’s also seen how people with dementia can be supported to continue living a full life, something he now draws on as a Side by Side volunteer.
When Sandra’s mum’s application for NHS Continuing Healthcare was first turned down, she had to use her mum’s life savings to fund the care. The system of support for people with dementia is unfair, unsustainable and needs an urgent overhaul. But your generous donation is helping us campaign for the Government to fix dementia care.
