Dementia is an umbrella term for a number of progressive diseases that can impact upon a person's cognitive abilities, this can influence a person's life in numerous ways, from a social and emotional perspective, to carrying out everyday daily life tasks. The condition affects 47 million people worldwide, a figure that is predicted to increase to 75 million in 2030 and 132 million by 2050.
Intrcare firmly view dementia from a 'rights based' approach. People with dementia can be subjected to stigmatization and discrimination, this is often due to a lack of training, information and guidance available. People need to be enabled and supported to live positively with their dementia and to remain valued members of their community.
