Equity in service provision for dementia patients and their families

PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing
/
START DATE AND DURATION: October 2019
Summary

This research is examining equity in service provision for older people with dementia. It comprises a systematic review and qualitative research with people affected by dementia and service providers, and will examine whether services are tailored to minority needs, such as ethnicity, religion, sexuality, and social background. It tackles the double disadvantage of dementia with social deprivation or minority status.

Throughout the study, ideas on how to spread good practice and lay the foundations for change will be developed. This study is based in the context of the Equality Act and wider communities of practice, such as those working in dementia.
