Unite to end the dementia tax

Wednesday 14 June 2017

The Dementia Tax may have shaped the General Election campaign, but it’s not a new issue


For too long, the 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK have been struggling to pay the catastrophic costs of their care. That’s because, unlike other diseases, people with dementia don’t get free care on the NHS.

This is wrong. People with dementia shouldn’t be discriminated against because of their condition.

Successive governments have swept the problem under the carpet and families have been paying the price. But we can’t let the new government dodge the problem any longer. The time to unite is now.

Alzheimer's Society need you – and everyone you know – to sign their petition today and demand that the new government finds a long-term solution to end the Dementia Tax once and for all.

Sign their petition here.
