its so great that a well known person such as he is, is willing to campaign .....
Yes, agree with you, wholeheartedly - he will have a huge audience listening intently.
Hope this will make a difference, I thought the following were going to make some difference but not sure they did - when Ronald Reagan made his announcement - about 12 years ago, when the book and film Iris came out, we had TV programmes by Tony Robinson and then Cliff Richard speaking about his mother's dementia and other high profile people speaking out - maybe they all added to general awareness but something more is needed.
What will make a difference ?, or do we have to wait for the drip by drip effect ? how long and what does it take for the big expansion of resources in research and easy, consistent access to standardised care services across the UK and beyond ?
The forthcoming Dementia Strategy by current Government may set the statutory ball rolling perhaps ? Dementia and other Care as well as NHS drugs are a postcode lottery at the moment. At least if you are well off you can move to where the best services are - as Iris Murdoch did in her last year or so, to one of the best care homes in the UK. Why cant they all be modelled on that one?
