There are 20,000 reasons to take action on dementia. In the run up to the Northern Ireland Assembly elections in May 2016 Alzheimer’s Society filmed health spokespersons from the 5 main parties. They state why it is important to take action on dementia in the new Assembly term and tell us what their parties intend to do to improve the lives of people affected by dementia in Northern Ireland.
In this film we hear from Alex Easton, Health spokesperson of the DUP. Click on the links at the end of the film to hear from the other parties.
As many as 20,000 people in Northern Ireland have a form of dementia and every one of them has a right to the care they need, now.
Alzheimer's Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers.
