People with dementia are forced to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds paying for their own care. Unite with us today and end this injustice: [ Bit.ly Link ]

The dementia tax refers to the enormous injustice in the care system for people with dementia. This is our time to try and ensure that no one has to pay catastrophic costs for their care.

A thorough and timely assessment for possible dementia is essential. A dementia diagnosis can provide a person with an explanation for their symptoms, removing uncertainty and allowing them to begin to adjust.

Society often fails to listen to the voices of people affected by dementia. But we are. ‘Turning Up the Volume: unheard voices of dementia’ is a look at the real picture of living with dementia today from the people who know, and reflects our ambition to connect with as many people living with a diagnosis of dementia as possible.

In the last few days there’s been a lot of talk about what will help carers feel supported and able to look after their loved ones with dementia. If you had a chance to talk the next Government, what would you want to see them do?

Spokespeople from the political parties will be at our annual conference tomorrow. Tell us what you feel so we can feed in your top concerns, or visit our website...

Because public understanding is so poor, people with dementia often feel – and are – misunderstood, marginalised and isolated. And that means that they’re less likely to be able to live independently in their own communities. But Dementia Friends is transforming the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about dementia.

Joan, whose parents both live in a £2,000/week care home, is terrified of the future. She’s calculated that all of her parents’ savings combined with the sale of their bungalow will only pay for another four and a half years of care. The situation is unthinkable for her and her husband, who are both retired and live solely off their pension.

There are too many stories like Joan's - please...

We all have hopes and dreams for the future, but how many of us have factored in what would happen if we developed dementia? Instead of spending a carefully saved pension on the retirement you'd planned, you could end up paying £1,000 per week for a care home.
