Dementia, Rights and the Social Model of Disability

  • Dementia, Rights and the Social Model of Disability

    This report from the Mental Health Foundation argues that viewing dementia as a disability rather than an illness would unlock the potential for policy to be developed and services designed, delivered, and monitored by people living with dementia. As a result, people living with dementia will have a strengthened ability to advocate for appropriate levels of investment in social care so they can live as active citizens in the community.
