My Mum struggled with dementia for many years, finally end up in a nursing home needing help and care for even the simplest of things. She could not be left alone for a moment. Why is this not considered a medical condition to be funded by the NHS is beyond me.
Securing CHC funding when you have dementia is like trying to get blood from a stone. But dementia is an illness and should be treated as such. Taking the life savings from society’s most vulnerable is simply wrong.
