French presidential candidates post dementia plans online
Wednesday 21 March 2012
France Alzheimer has launched a website showing the positions of the presidential candidates on the challenges faced by people with dementia and their families. The candidates' comments are in the form of replies to ten questions - prepared by the French association - which cover the following points:
- support for the launch of the fourth national Alzheimer plan
- development of institutions specialising in dementia
- legal recognition for caregivers
- reimbursement for caregiver training programmes and for non-pharmacological intervention.
The French presidential election will take place on 22 April and the third national Alzheimer plan will expire at the end of 2012 www.francealzheimer-elections2012.org
