There is no real support or services for lots of the issues people living with dementia and their carers face on a daily BASIS. Families need more 1:1 support. An emergency around the clock call out service is needed to deal with the crisis positions many find themselves in, this would eliviate the unnecessary strain put on the police service who although do an amazing job are not trained to deal with these situations. A trained service could avoid many people with dementia having to be sectioned. FORMER carer services are non existant leaving people who have spent a huge part of their lives caring 24/7 lost, depressed and often suicidal completely alone. They will have saved the government millions in care fees but now in need of support themselves left flailing!! Come on MK……. More tailored support is needed surrounding dementia and families!!
