Dementia is an issue that disproportionally affects women. The Alzheimer’s Society tells us that two thirds of the people living with dementia in the UK are women and many research papers state that most family carers and those paid to care for people with dementia are also women.
But what do we really know about the experiences of women affected by dementia?
How are their experiences of dementia shaped by their experiences of being women?
We are working with women affected by dementia to enable them to tell their stories which will be developed into a display and resources. These resources will enable us to explore the implications of the perspectives of women on dementia research, policy and practice.
The voices of the women involved in this project will initiate a debate and open up discussions around the lives of women affected by dementia.
