Abolish Dementia Care Costs for the Clients/family

0 have signed. Let’s get to 35,000!


People suffering with Dementia are having to pay for care themselves if they own a house or have savings. Most people who suffer with this being 65+, they have worked their whole life, paid tax and NI, saved and now the Government take this away from them and their family to pay the fee's.

My grandad recently moved into a care home for his own safety as advised by the social worker as he is suffering from Dementia, this was really hard for us as he has always been independent, however he very quickly deteriorated and sadly now  we have no choice.

The weekly cost for him/us to be in this safe environment for his medical/mental health needs are £705.00 A WEEK or £33,000 A YEAR!!! We may have to sell his home to fund this! The home my mother grew up in, the home me and my siblings have many fond memories in, the home that was brought to be passed down in the family, and the government could take this away to pay for care that my Grandad NEEDS!!

THIS IS HAPPENING UP AND DOWN THE COUNTRY AND IT NEEDS TO STOP!HELP ME GET THE WORD OUT AND PUT A STOP TO THIS, TO HELP US AND THE FUTURE GENERATIONS!!

The Government should put a stop to this and ABOLISH the charges or heavily discount them for all clients that NEED the care. 

Thanks you,

Matt
