MAHE to host Indo-Scotland symposium on Advanced Dementia


Team Udayavani, Apr 29, 2019, 12:20 PM IST

Manipal: Manipal College of Nursing, MAHE, Manipal in collaboration with University of West of Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland, UK will organize a symposium on Advanced Dementia on April 30, 2019, at the Dr TMA Pai second floor hall here. The symposium will also include focus group discussion on challenges faced by caregivers.

With India having an alarming 4 million people suffering from the symptom, there is an immediate need to develop practical and theoretical understanding among practitioners, policy decision-makers and the public about advanced dementia, alongside an understanding of advanced dementia-related abuse and abandonment.

There is an urgent need within India to develop dementia education aligned with the Global Sustainable Development Goals.   Advanced dementia within India is a hidden problem which places individuals and sometimes their young carers at high risk of poverty and other inequalities.

Fifty million people are living with dementia globally and India has the second highest number of people suffering from it. The majority of people with dementia live in multi-generational households in India and around 50% include children under the age of 16 (Dementia India Report, 2010) and the majority of care is provided by family members and local home nurses.
