Only 46 with dementia

My brother-in-law has dementia & there are no resources for this as social services cannot handle this rare illness. He is in a care home 60 miles from us as that all is available he needs a secure unit so he cannot get lost outside we cannot see him often as it cost £20 to see him & he will be there the rest of his life as he is at risk from danger why is no help available for these cases

Hi Angie, Sorry to hear about

Hi Angie,

Sorry to hear about your brother in law - there is help and support available for people suffering with early onset dementia, but probably not easy to find. Have you had a look at the Alzheimer's Society's website ?

It's a fallacy that this awful disease only affects the elderly as Terry Prachet and our own Norrms can testify.
