Hi everyone

Tony Robinson was a guest blogger on the 2020 Vision site, a website set up by Alan Milburn and Charles Clark to start a debate on the future direction of the Labour Party and its policies. Mr Robinson chose to focus on treatment of the elderly and mentioned people with dementia.

In his piece he argues for:
- a shift in attitudes towards the elderly
- more resources from government to fund services
- better training and career prospects fro careers
- access to Alzheimer's drug treatments
- more short breaks for carers

His piece has generated 35 responses. There is also the opportunity for you to contribute to this debate.
