Following up on the 2021 report ‘Journey through the diagnosis of dementia’, this year the ADI’s World Alzheimer Report will focus on post-diagnosis support. Views and experiences gathered through these surveys will provide valuable insight into post-diagnostic care for the report.
Chris Lynch, ADI Deputy CEO and Director of Policy, Publications & Communications said: “The importance of post-diagnosis support cannot be underestimated. It is vital that we capture the lived experience of people living with dementia and carers, alongside the experiences of healthcare practitioners, long-term care practitioners and clinicians in these surveys.”
ADI invites people to contribute by completing the one of its surveys by 20th June. The surveys take approximately 10 minutes to complete and there are three versions available on the ADI website – one for people living with dementia, one for carers and one for clinicians and formal (paid) health and long-term care practitioners.
