Women and Dementia (Alzheimer’s Disease International)

Summary

This year’s Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) World Alzheimer Report is a thorough international review of the disproportionate impact of dementia on women. It examines three aspects of the differential effect of gender on:

  1. Women living with dementia.
  2. Women caring for people with dementia in a professional caring role.
  3. Women with informal caring (“caregiving”) roles for people with dementia.

This report covers broader factors, such as issues affecting women in low and middle-income countries, international migration, family structures and kinship, and the need for research into the long-term impact of dementia on women as family carers and/or the in formal care workforce.
