Dementia-Friendly Personal Budgets (Alzheimer’s Society)

Summary

The Alzheimer’s Society wants local authorities in England to remove barriers which may prevent people with dementia having access to personal budgets. Less than one-third of people receiving social care support for problems relating to memory and cognition have such personal budgets.

A personal budgets guide, entitled “Making personal budgets dementia friendly” clarifies how councils might improve the personal budgets application process for people with dementia and their families / carers.
