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

/www.alz.co.uk/research/world-report-2012">Alzheimer 2012 report is based on a global survey of 2500 people (those with dementia and family carers) across more than 50 countries. Just over 50% of the respondents with dementia had Alzheimer's disease and just under a half of the total number were under the age of 65. The main aims of the survey were to record individual experiences of stigma by people with dementia and family carers and help identify whether national dementia plans have had an impact on reducing stigma.

Dementia is seriously disabling for those who have it as well as their families and carers. According to estimates from the World Health Organisation (WHO), there is currently one new case of dementia every four seconds. If we take into account the rapid increase in the elderly population, there will potentially be 115 million people with dementia worldwide in the next 40 years, thus placing a major burden on health and social systems. Only eight nations out of 193 WHO countries have implemented national dementia plans, showing that more could be done by governments to help alleviate the associated economic and social costs.
