Gillian Keegan MP joined 120 other Members of Parliament at an Alzheimer’s Society photography exhibition to showcase the human cost of the dementia care crisis.
The photo exhibition, 'Dementia Care: The Crisis Behind Closed Doors', depicts the human cost of a care system that is in need of reform.
At the exhibition, Parliamentarians met with people affected by dementia to hear about how the dementia crisis has affected them and their families.
Alzheimer’s Society is calling for a Dementia Fund in the upcoming Spending Review to end the dementia penalty, bringing fairness into the system and improving quality of care.
Sally Copley, Director of Policy, Campaigns & Partnerships at Alzheimer’s Society said: ‘It is fantastic to see MPs from across parliament coming together to champion the voices of people with dementia and call for reform. We urge the next Prime Minister to make addressing the dementia crisis an urgent priority. The injustice of people battling to get the care they so desperately need, while also battling the devastating effects of dementia, must be addressed now. We must Fix Dementia Care.”
