David Jones, MP for Clwyd West, joined over 200 other MPs along with representatives from Alzheimer’s Society in Westminster to meet people with dementia and commit to support those affected by the condition.
David Jones MP supported the Alzheimer’s Society’s general election campaign which calls for more to be done to ensure dementia is accurately diagnosed and given sufficient support once diagnosed.
David Jones said:
‘I am very pleased to support such an important cause and to meet people who deal with the day to day struggle of living with dementia.
‘There are an estimated 1,452 people in Clwyd West who live with the dementia and I think it is extremely important that people are made aware so that those suffering from the condition can be supported throughout their communities.
‘Alzheimer’s Society are doing a fantastic job of raising awareness and encouraging this kind of holistic support.’
