The Mail and the Express both tend to run lots of stories/campaigns on issues regarding care of the elderly (bearing in mind that dementia doesn't JUST affect the elderly!) The cynic in me says that this has a lot to do with their readership - middle class meaning assets in excess of £20Kish, meaning that they are generally privately funded. The Express and Mail both tend also to run articles regarding inheritance tax, which hits the same readership. Also, the 2 newspapers are direct competitors with each other!Lucille said:Hi Noelphobic
I read this article as well. I was staggered (although I don't know why) to discover his wife has had AD for 25 years! How awful for all concerned ... Is the Daily Mail championing AD at the moment. With this and Bruce's story? I don't buy the paper, just pick up others' leftovers, so I might have missed something about a campaign??
