World Alzheimer's Report 2012 Reveals Stigma and Social Exclusion are Major Barriers for People With Dementia and Their Carers
Date:9/20/2012

iety, sometimes by their own friends and family members. What they want is to be treated like normal people with a focus on their abilities and not on their impairments. Bringing light to these issues will help improve the quality of life for people with dementia and for their carers."  

Marc Wortmann, Executive Director of ADI, says, "Dementia and Alzheimer's disease continue to grow at a rapid rate due to global ageing. The disease has a huge impact on the families that are hit, but also affects health and social systems because of the economic cost. Countries are not prepared and will continue not to be prepared unless we overcome the stigma and enhance efforts to provide better care for those who have dementia and find a cure for the future."

The Latest World Alzheimer Report reveals the following:

  • 24% of people with dementia and more than one in ten carers (11%) admitted to hiding or concealing the diagnosis of dementia - with those under the age of 65 believing they might face special issues in their workplace or children's school
  • 40% of people with dementia reported not being included in everyday life
    • Nearly 60% of the above indicated that friends are the most likely people to avoid them or lose contact after diagnosis followed by family members
  • A quarter of carers (24%) feel there are negative associations in their country about carers of people with dementia while a similar number (28%) feel they have been treated differently or avoided
  • Both people with dementia and carers admitted they had stopped themselves forming close relationships as it was too difficult
  • Education, information and awareness were identified as priorities to help reduce the stigma of dementia
