Fund dedicated dementia wards in all hospitals

Petition Details

Dementia effects all ages, but many hospitals do not have specialised facilities to meet the needs of people with dementia and their carers. The Government should fund dedicated dementia wards in all hospitals, to provide advice, right environment, targeted medical treatment & comfort.

Additional Information

Dedicated wards would consist of nurses, doctors & other specialists who would be able to give the right treatment & assistance, in discussion with patients and carers. We believe the benefits of improving specialised care would far outweigh the costs.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
