  • Police forces “have long way to go” with dementia support

    Police forces “have long way to go” with dementia support

    23.02.17 Police forces across the country are starting to prioritise people with dementia but there is still a long way to go, said Lynne Woodward, head of equality and human rights for Leicestershire Police. “Just under half of police forces are members of their local Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) but there is still a way to go and as we take budget cuts we know that there is a real issue for us,” she told a conference in London. “We encourage all police forces to become involved in their DAA” She said hate crime and financial abuse were two priorities for the police in relation to dementia. “Post-Brexit we are experiencing spikes in hate crime and a real concern is that people who identify as disabled don’t report hate crime, and particularly people with dementia,” Woodward said. She added: “It is amazing how often people with dementia are subject to financial abuse by their own families, signing away their home or savings… Sometimes it’s legitimate, but it is an issue."

  • One in eight older people denied essential help with daily living

    One in eight older people denied essential help with daily living

    22.02.17 Nearly 1.2 million people aged 65-plus are denied the help they need for essential daily living activities like getting dressed, going to the toilet, eating and washing. In a new report Age UK estimates that an additional £4.8 billion a year is needed to ensure that every older person who has unmet needs has access to social care. Age UK’s analysis shows that one in every eight older people cannot get the help they need for essential activities because of the social care crisis, a 17.9% increase on last year and a 48% increase since 2010. The charity called for an “urgent injection of funds” and a long-term solution to the care crisis that engaged the public “in the important question of how we pay for a decent care system we can all rely on when we need it.” For Age UK’s report, click HERE
