Lack of social care funding for those with dementia is an embarrassment and a travesty- Budget 2017

22nd November 2017 | By | Reply More

Responding to a lack of funding for social care in today’s budget, Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said: “The extra money for the NHS is hugely needed, but by neglecting social care the Government is just filling up a bucket with holes in it.

“They have ducked an opportunity today – to put into action their commitment to tackle dementia care head on. People with dementia will rightfully feel betrayed and abandoned.

“The absence of state support for vulnerable people with dementia is a travesty, and an embarrassment for our society.
