People may not be aware of this fact, but people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease do get home care and help, but they have to pay partially towards it, I think this is totally unfair, when you consider the life expectancy of a dementia patient can last from anything to 3yrs to 20yrs and it’s the same with Alzheimer’s, but the funding they get is only part funded and the person or spouse has to find the rest, I know most people don’t look at it like this, but when you consider if you have cancer you get the Macmillan nurses, the hospices, etc, giving these patients a helping hand, which I totally agree with, but dementia and Alzheimer’s do not, they get carers but as I said it’s only part funded, the spouse has to pay the rest, no disrespect to the people with cancer, but dementia and Alzheimer’s is a life ending disease, and it can be demoralising for the spouse of the person with one of these diseases, they are also unpaid and do this through love for their spouses, the contributions can be as high as £90 per week, that’s £360 per month, the care allowance that she receives is swallowed up completely through this, leaving her with nothing for any other aspects of care help, unless I fund it, which I often do, often the person with one of these diseases has no idea what is happening to them, I speak from experience as my wife has dementia and has had it for nearly 9yrs, and every day it is a struggle, I’m just in the process of writing to my MP, but don’t hold out much hope, I’m also writing to Boris Johnson, there again I don’t hold out much hope of getting this changed, but with all your help I hope to get enough signatures to make them change their minds, so please can you sign this petition to get free home care for dementia and Alzheimer’s patient
