Place of publication:

This is the Alzheimer's Society's third annual report looking at the quality of life for people with dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It draws together evidence from the Alzheimer’s Society annual survey, which involved over 1,000 people with dementia and their carers, and analysis from Alzheimer’s Society, King’s College London and the London School of Economics. It provides a summary of how well people are living with their dementia, what support they are receiving, and what barriers they face to living well. The report also looks at what needs to happen to effect the changes that are necessary to bring real improvement to the lives of people with dementia, including addressing the artificial divide between health and social care. Key sections cover: improving dementia diagnosis; a health and social care system that works better for people affected by dementia; quality support in every care setting; dementia friendly communities; and progress in research. The report makes 14 recommendations for action to ensure people affected by dementia can live well and have a good quality of life. (Edited publisher abstract)
