The Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘It’s all about Rights’ campaign highlights the fact that people with dementia have rights to information, care and support and the Northern Ireland Assembly has a duty to develop a new deal on dementia to ensure their rights are being realised.
There are three key priorities of the ‘It’s all about Rights' campaign:
Dementia is a serious, complex and progressive health condition. Good quality care and support can make a huge difference to those affected by it.
As research shows the number of people with dementia will continue to rise – the Executive must ensure the condition receives the Health and Social Care priority it warrants.
People with dementia have rights to care and support – the government has a responsibility to respect and enable those rights.
Pray that the campaign will be responded to and appropriate funding made available. Pray for the carers of people with a dementia that they also will be well supported.
