Fiona Phillips investigates the struggle of Alzheimer's sufferers and their families to get adequate care and support, for Dispatches. As she faces her own dilemmas about the care of her father, who has developed Alzheimer's, she talks to families around the country about the difficulties they have faced in obtaining help, from both the NHS and the local authority. Many carers sacrifice employment, free time and family life to look after their loved ones, but what level of financial support or respite care do they receive? How does it vary from place to place? And with the number of people suffering from dementia projected to rise from 700,000 to over one million by 2025, is the Government prepared to cope? Keeping with stark Monday viewing; Channel 4 airs Half Ton Son at 10.00pm.
