Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, attended a recent Alzheimer’s Society photography exhibition intended to showcase the human cost of the dementia care crisis.
At the exhibition, Justin met with people affected by dementia to hear about how the dementia crisis has touched them and their families.
Alzheimer’s Society is calling for a Dementia Fund to end the dementia penalty, bringing fairness into the system and improving quality of care.
“The photo exhibition, ‘Dementia Care: The Crisis Behind Closed Doors’, depicted the human cost of a care system that is unfair, unsustainable and in urgent need of reform up and down the country.
“I am proud to stand with people affected by dementia and make the case for more funding for dementia care. One million people will have dementia by 2021 and it is vital that we are able to deliver high quality dementia care to everyone that needs it.
“Alzheimer’s Society is here for anyone affected by dementia. For information and support, call the National Dementia Helpline on 0300 222 1122 or visit alzheimers.org.uk.”
