"In just two months, all mum's savings have been spent on her dementia care. I don't want to move my mum, as the care home is good and she's settled there. But the cost of her care will be difficult to sustain. It's constantly on my mind."
Sandra's mum Jean recently moved into a nursing home. It costs £1200 a week, and is paid for out of Jean’s savings and pension. Sandra knows the money won’t last long.
If Jean had been diagnosed with another disease, she would have been supported by the NHS - but because she has dementia, she has to spend everything she saved on care.
