Dementia UK says at a national level they're hearing David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt talk aboutmore funding for dementia. However, they're still not see it cascade down to the local level.
“Local authorities will say that there is care in place to support people with dementia. This may include Dementia Advisors or the Prime Minister’s new initiative ‘Dementia Friends’. However, services are not joined up and in many places families are left in the dark about what services are available to them. That’s why Admiral Nursing is so unique as this specialist support bridges the health and social care system and guides families to the relevant support,be it financial or practical, that they require”.
