Decision

Conference notes that whilst dementia can apply to people of all ages it primarily affects older people.

Conference further notes that the level of funding for dementia research is considerably lower than that for other illnesses.

Conference believes that there is an urgent need to increase the amount of money needed for research into the cause and possible cure of dementia.

Conference instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee and calls upon the National Executive Council to campaign for the allocation of additional resources for dementia research.
