Local MP calls for more action on dementia

Mar 02, 2015

Jon Cruddas has called for greater support to be provided for families affected by dementia. In a visit to the Barking and Dagenham Alzheimer society last Friday 27th March, Jon spoke to staff about the immense challenges faced by those caring for people with dementia.

With the country’s population ageing over recent decades, the disease has been touching the lives of more and more families. There are now 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and by 2025, this will have risen to 1 million.
