I cannot understand why Dementia is not classed as a medical condition and that people with this cruel illness have to pay for their care. It appears to be classified as a Social rather than a medical need. There are many frail, elderly people who need social care such as help with washing and dressing, the needs of someone with Dementia are much more complex than this because they have lost their cognitive skills and their care needs are much more demanding.
It seems so callous that they and their carers should be expected to pay for the sufferer's care in some cases using their life savings or having to sell their homes. When someone has a medical condition such as cancer, a stroke or many other recognized illnesses they are least entitled to some financial support why are dementia sufferers being treated so inhumanely?
