UK Policy Report: the Quality of Life for People with Dementia in 2014 (Alzheimer’s Society)

Summary

The Alzheimer’s Society has published the third annual report “Dementia 2014: Opportunity for change”, which examines many aspects of the quality of life for people with dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Similar to the two previous reports in this series, “Dementia 2013: the hidden voice of loneliness” and “Dementia 2012: a national challenge”, this document offers a wide-ranging “snapshot” of how well people are able to live with dementia, the support they might expect to receive, and barriers to their well-being.

The Alzheimer’s Society recommends 14 actions to help ensure people affected by dementia might live well.

Further, this report updates the reader on developments in dementia research (including recent trials, and the evolving evidence concerning causes, prevention, care and treatment). It explores progress towards the development of dementia-friendly communities. This report complements, and was launched at roughly the same time as, the “Dementia UK: Second edition” report; which summarises evidence on the prevalence and cost of dementia in the UK.
