Campaign Response: Dementia Care Reform

I have been contacted by constituents regarding Dementia Care Reform.

As the Member of Parliament for Milton Keynes South, I have included below my response:

I believe that increasing public awareness and understanding of dementia among the wider public is vital to ensure that people are supported to live well with this upsetting condition.

I am encouraged that there are over three million Dementia Friends, a national support network run by the Alzheimer’s Society which helps dementia sufferers to lead lives that are active, creative and meaningful. I am one of those three million and I would encourage you to become a dementia friend, if you have not already

The Government is continuing to integrate and improve health and social care to protect people at every stage of their lives. In the Conservative Manifesto, on which I was proud to stand, we set out our aim to build the same level of consensus on social care that we have already built on the NHS. I firmly support the renewed commitment in the Queen's Speech to bring forward proposals to reform social care during this Parliament, and eagerly anticipate taking part in a conversation about establishing a care system fit for the 21st century.
