Campaigning for quality social care for people affected by dementia
Right now, nearly a million families affected by dementia in the UK are struggling to get the support and care that they need and deserve
While dementia isn’t curable yet, we can cure the care system.
Watch our video to see how the social care system is failing people affected by dementia.
What is the problem with the care system?
Social care is failing. Decades of 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.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Alzheimer’s Society is calling on government to cure the care system now.
Will you help us Cure the Care System?
Let’s make sure that people with dementia are able to access the care they deserve, when they need it. Become a campaigner today.
We are campaigning for a care system where:
- People affected by dementia are able to live the life they want, with greater independence, choice and control.
- Social care is of the highest quality and better meet the individual needs of people affected by dementia.
- Social care is free at the point of use and easy to access for all people affected by dementia.
We want to see a social care system that is fit for the future; one that provides quality care, that is free and easy to access, no matter where you live.
Have a read of our recent report, Stabilise, Energise, Realise (PDF), to find out our long term plan for how we can make this sort of social care system a reality.
From our previous work on Fix Dementia Care to our campaign to Cure the Care System, we won’t stop until our voices are heard.
