Question and answer
misunderstanding aobut dementia can affect attitudes towards an individual
People with dementia face widespread discrimination for a number of reasons. There remains significant misunderstanding about and stigma attached to dementia that manifests itself in widespread discriminatory attitudes. [ Because most people with dementia are over the age of 65, they can also face issues of age discrimination. People with dementia are also more at risk of discrimination and infringements of their human rights because they may not have the capacity to challenge abuses of their human rights or to report what has occurred. This means that many people with dementia and their
carers face a poorer quality of life than the general population. Alzheimer's Society exists to champion the rights of everyone with dementia and those who care for them. People with dementia and those who care for them should be treated with dignity and respect, and should have access to high quality care, that is based on an assessment of personal needs and preferences, rather than prejudiced assumptions about dementia. For people with dementia to be able to play a full part in community, society must prioritise the eradication of discrimination and tackle the stigma attached to dementia. ]
