House of Commons
DEMENTIA FUND
EDM #2360
Tabled 02 May 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that an estimated 60 per cent of recipients of homecare and 70 per cent of care home residents live with dementia; acknowledges that dementia is a condition caused by diseases of the brain with complex support needs that should be met by the NHS, like any other health condition; recognises that the typical cost of dementia care of £100,000 can be financially devastating for individuals and families; welcomes the Alzheimer’s Society’s proposal for a Dementia Fund as a financial injection into the social care system in the short-to-medium term, allowing for greater provision of safe and quality care, longer visits and savings to the NHS; believes that this could be financed through unallocated funding for community and preventative support in the NHS Long-Term Plan; and urges the Government to include a Dementia Fund in the forthcoming Spending Review to break the deadlock on reforming the social care system and end the unfairness facing people with dementia.
