Let's talk about dementia is the name of the communication initiative, based on the understanding that talking about dementia helps fight stigma, normalizes language and encourages people to discover more about the disease and to seek help, advice and support, highlights the digital site of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

The letter, which was signed by more than 100,000 Brits, read: "We are writing to you as people affected by dementia, their families, friends and supporters".

"This overwhelming response from the individuals throughout the nation actually reveals the general public outrage on the misery brought on by our damaged social care system".

"The collective political failure to agree to deliver care reform over decades has left us with a system in crisis".

The care crisis swamping Britain comes as the Department for Health and Social Care has delayed plans to publish a blueprint to tackle the problem no fewer than six times. It is estimated that the number of people living with dementia will triple, from the current 50 million to 152 million by mid-century.

"This can be a large alternative for our prime minister and his authorities to reply the pleas of the 850,000 individuals residing with dementia throughout the United Kingdom and the hundreds of thousands who're their households, mates and carers". Please don't let people with dementia down.

"We need an NHS Dementia Fund in the spending review on Wednesday".

Dame Barbara Windsor has delivered a letter to the Prime Minister on the behalf of the Alzheimer's Society, asking him to address the "devastating state" of dementia care in the UK. I can not stress how desperately we need to see immediate action to fix dementia care.

The EastEnders actress, 82, who has been battling dementia since 2014, wrote urging the Prime Minister to come up with an urgent funding solution for social care.

"Across the country dementia care is hard, an in some places even impossible, to access".

Jeremy Hughes, chief executive of Alzheimer's Society, said: "Barbara and Scott will stop at nothing to help us achieve our goals".

Jake is behind them and his household are additionally within the image.

"The system is completely unprepared to support the growing numbers of people receiving a dementia diagnosis". Too often, people with dementia end up hospitalised through lack of care, leading to enormous cost for the NHS and great personal cost to themselves. How much more evidence is needed?
