Inadequate care forcing dementia sufferers into homes early, says charity
"Sub-standard care will mean 50,000 people with dementia will be forced into care homes earlier than necessary, racking up a preventable monthly bill of £70m to the taxpayer, a report warns today.
"Most people with the condition prefer to live and be cared for at home, but the Alzheimer's Society said there was inadequate help for everyday tasks such as shopping, washing and dressing.
"The result, the charity said, was that some people would end up in care homes and tens of thousands more would be admitted to hospital unnecessarily."
