This week is Alzheimer’s Action Week (Monday 17th-Sunday 23rd May 2021) Will you and your family and friends take action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia?
Nearly a million UK families are struggling to care for their loved ones with the dignity and support they deserve. Decades of underfunding have led to a social care system that’s difficult to access, costly, inadequate and unfair.
While dementia isn’t curable yet, the care system is.
The Alzheimer’s Society are calling on the UK Government to cure the care system now by committing to:
- Publication of a clear, budgeted, plan with milestones, with reform underway this year
- Ensuring their reforms consider not just funding, but also improving the quality of care that people receive.
Watch and share our short film, showing the impact the broken social care system has on carers. Without support, dementia claims more than one life. Click here to watch the film: https://youtu.be/g6rk88V-TvM
