The cost of living crisis

Higher care costs and rising loneliness due to the cost of living is leaving many people with dementia at risk of crisis this winter.

No one should have to choose between heating their home and getting the care they need.

As people affected by dementia face rising care costs, more than one in ten are choosing to reduce or even stop vital support services.

Many people with dementia are finding it harder to cut costs.

Nearly half of people living with dementia are forgetting to turn off lights, and a quarter are struggling to use their heating controls.

Dementia can already leave people feeling isolated and abandoned.

Over half of people with dementia living alone report they never leave the house, and many are being forced to stay in one room to reduce their energy bills.

This winter, the cost of living crisis is only going to make things worse.
