Liz calls for more support for people with dementia during the Covid-19 pandemic

[16/11/2020 | No comment]

During a debate in Parliament last week, I called on the Government to learn lessons from the pandemic’s impact on people with dementia.

The majority of dementia patients are cared for in the community and in their own homes – and yet these care settings have not received the attention and priority that was needed during this pandemic. Home care workers need testing just like care home staff, and family carers need extra support to prevent them from burning out.

You can watch my speech online, or read it on Hansard.
