This report from the Alzheimer’s Society builds on their position on the quality of care set out in the paper, ‘A Future for Personalised Care’. It captures voices to amplify the goal of personalised care based on what matters to people, as set out in the vision of Social Care Future and supported by many leaders across the sector.
While there are many statistics on the impact of the lack of proper support, behind each of these numbers are individual people with dementia and their families, living with the reality of this day by day. In this report you will hear from just some of the people that Alzheimer’s Society and Future Health have engaged with in the development of this work.
Each tells just one story of an individual and their family and how their life has been impacted, not by their experience of dementia, but by their experience of social care.
