Caring for People with Dementia


Abstract
McGovern, Kevin This article explores a Report titled 'Dementia: Ethical Issues,' which was produced by the UK Nuffield Council on Bioethics. The Report calls us to examine our attitudes towards both dementia and people with dementia, and to act in solidarity with people with dementia by seeking to include them in mainstream society, and to provide them with sufficient help and services so that they are able to enjoy a good quality of life throughout the course of their illness. It also calls us to act in solidarity with the carers of people with dementia, providing them with help and services both in their caring capacity and also in meeting their personal needs
