Ade Adeyemo joins his voice to a national movement calling on people to stop the Conservatives’ planned Dementia Tax.
Solihull’s demographic means that our residents could be hit hard by Theresa May’s shock manifesto revelation on social care costs. The Tories are going after people’s homes. This could affect people to the tune of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Tim Farron, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, has launched a national movement calling on people, irrespective of their party affiliation, to stop the Conservatives’ planned Dementia Tax.
It comes alongside Liberal Democrat research that reveals that across England, 9 out 10 homes could be eligible for sale to meet Theresa May’s Dementia Tax.
Tim Farron is writing to key organisations about the campaign, including David Cameron as President of Alzheimer's Research UK.
Writing to the leaders of leading health and older peoples’ charities, Tim Farron said:
“Every elderly person that needs care should receive it in the best place for them and not be fearful of those mounting, limitless costs. I am determined that we ensure that Theresa May drops the so-called ‘Dementia Tax’ and implement a cap on the cost of care.
“Caring for our elderly must be above party politics and that is why I want to urge anyone who opposes the Conservatives’ plans to come together to stop it.”
Prospective Lib Dem MP for Solihull Ade said:
“98% of Solihull’s homes could be liable for the Dementia Tax. This is a terrifying figure. I am joining my voice to Tim Farron’s call to stop the Dementia Tax. Tim is urging people to sign up at dementiatax.org.uk to help. Please do the same.”
Together we can stop the so-called ‘Dementia’ Tax.
