Supporting those with dementia and their carers


Many of those living with dementia and their carers rely on support from the social care system. However, those living with dementia can face catastrophic costs, the system can be difficult to navigate and many are left unable to access the care they require.


This short inquiry will consider how the social care system is supporting those living with dementia. It will build on work from the Committee’s recent inquiry into Social Care: fund and workforce to further consider what changes must be made in the long awaited reform of the social care system to support those with dementia.


The inquiry will be held over two sessions. The first will explore the experiences of those living with dementia, the support currently available and what good care should look like.  The second will consider the Government’s commitment to ensuring all those living with dementia care are able to live well.
