    DEMENTIA CARE

    I don’t think the following thread gives enough indication that there is a petition form available (on the thread )to support the campaign for Dementia Care
    Quick and simple to complete , and as indicated in the message below I have already received acknowledgements frromthe Society and my MP

    Shocking variation of hospital care for people with dementia exposed
    Started by Alzheimer's Society, Today 09:50 AM



    Dear james
    Thank you for sending a message to Simon Stevens, asking him to ensure that all hospitals in England publish an annual dementia statement.

    An annual dementia statement is the necessary first step towards truly dementia-friendly hospital care, and is essential if we are to end the postcode lottery of care people living with dementia face on admission to hospital.
    Over the coming weeks and months, we will be pushing for changes to the care system that are desperately needed by people affected by dementia, and we need as many people as possible to join our campaign and take action as possible.

    If you haven't already, please use the share buttons below to ask your friends to take action.

    For latest campaign news, visit www.alzheimers.org.uk/fixcampaign or follow the hashtag #FixDementiaCare on Facebook and Twitter
    Thank you for the support. We'll be in touch again soon.

    I've signed, emailed my MP and tweeted. My MP has promptly replied that he is already scheduled to be there and will write to me after. He's a good'un.

    That was a really efficient way of ensuring they get support. I've done it too

    Both e-mails sent and shared on Facebook where it's already being shared again. Well done to the society for making it all so easy!
