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:
- Women living with dementia.
- Women caring for people with dementia in a professional caring role.
- 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.
