My dad

From Sylvia

My dad had Parkinsons, not dementia, but we experienced the same broken system as people affected by dementia. He was diagnosed age 60 and didn't make it to his 70th. For 10 years my mum, brother and I fought to get support where none was forthcoming; challenged (and eventually overturned CHC funding decisions for more than £30k of care costs); and overcome our horror at a system that was the polar opposite of person-centred and contributed more to his decline than his independence.
