Poole Communities Trust is supporting this Dementia Action Week. The Alzheimer’s Society is calling on the Government to cure the care system now.
Right now, the broken social care system means that in the UK, nearly 1 million people with dementia, by far the majority of social care users, and their families are struggling to get the support and dignity of care that they deserve.
Decades of underfunding and neglect have led to a care system that’s difficult to access, costly, inadequate and deeply unfair. And the coronavirus pandemic has exposed these failings like never before.
Until things change, a dementia diagnosis will continue to claim more than one life, as the families facing dementia feel its destructive effects.
It doesn’t have to be this way
Cure The Care System
We need the Government to provide quality social care, that is free and easy to access, no matter where you live.
