P-04-456 Dementia - This Could Happen to you

We, the undersigned, call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to:

i. Bring to an end the discrimination against dementia sufferers in Wales who apply for N.H.S. Continuing Care Funding, by allowing for the cognition category of need (known as the domain) to go up to the level Severe in the Welsh version of the Decision Support Tool. This would bring it in line with the English version; and

ii. Direct Local Health Boards to implement the National Framework for N.H.S., Continuing Care Funding correctly in terms of patient eligibility and without regard to budgetary constraints.
