This session will investigate how factors such as stigma, age, gender and ethnicity affect the experience of living with or caring for people with dementia. Later, it will offer guidance on how to adapt your practice to address discrimination and tailor care and services to meet the diverse needs of people affected by dementia.

 

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of diversity in shaping who we are and how we perceive others
  • Understand what stigma is and how it can affect the support and services people receive
  • Explain how factors such as age, gender, culture and ethnicity, sexual orientation and disabilities can affect the experience of living with or supporting someone with dementia
  • Identify how to adapt your practice to address discrimination and tailor care and services to meet the diverse needs of people affected by dementia

 

In this session, we will focus on the issues surrounding diversity in dementia and explore why diversity needs to be taken into account when undertaking assessments and delivering care.

This session has been mapped to the Dementia Training Standards Framework and is designed to support the Dementia Action Alliance Dementia Statements.
