Plans for Alzheimer's ignored in budget - again
17 May 2011
Pointing out what should have been in the Federal Government budget is arguably unfair. There are always unfulfilled needs and promises to be met at a later date. But it does seem fair to point out that once again government plans for Australia's future have ignored the growing epidemic of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, despite the major threat these pose to the budget and the health and aged care systems.
