Why the Government must cure the care system
Right now, nearly a million families affected by dementia in the UK are struggling to take care of their loved ones with the dignity and support they deserve.
Social care is failing. Chronic under-funding has led to a system that’s difficult to access, costly, inadequate and unfair. Until it changes, people living with dementia and their friends and family will feel its destructive effects.
NHS care is provided according to need and is free at the point of use. As a matter of fairness, dementia care must be delivered on the same principle.
Alzheimer’s Society is calling on government to cure the care system now. To provide quality care, that’s free and easy to access no matter where you live.
