Dementia Not Recognised as Terminal Illness

A report by Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Alzheimer’s Society has found that dementia sufferers face obstacles in receiving the high-quality care they require.

The two leading charities claim that Dementia sufferers are not getting the help they need because the condition is not recognised as a terminal illness.

This is the worrying situation that is faced by more than 800,000 people in the UK thought to have the incurable disease, and for their families and loved ones.

Members of the Private Client Department at Stone Rowe Brewer LLP recently completed training to become a Dementia Friend,  an initiative by the Public Health England and the Alzheimer’s Society to give people an understanding of dementia and to learn things that make a difference to people living in their community with dementia.
