The Dementia Policy Think Tank (member group of DEEP) & Innovations in Dementia CIC have co-produced a brief guide to help people understand the rights for people with dementia. This guide should be useful for:
- People with dementia
- Carers, family members, supporters and advocates
- Organisations, volunteers and professionals concerned with rights issues relating to dementia, ageing, disability and carers
- Service providers and commissioners
Thinking about dementia in terms of rights can also support a positive cultural shift in the way that dementia is perceived and understood (including by people with dementia themselves).
This booklet can help you as a care provider assist your clients with dementia navigate the legal landscape to ensure they are not discriminated against and can best access the services they are entitled to.
