Shortage of Alzheimer’s caregiver

New report reveals global Alzheimer’s epidemic creating shortage of caregivers and lack of support for family members

The World Alzheimer Report 2013 ‘Journey of Caring: An analysis of long-term care for dementia’, calls for governments around the world to make dementia a priority by implementing national plans, and by initiating urgent national debates on future arrangements for long-term care.
Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) and Bupa commissioned a team of researchers, led by Professor Martin Prince from King’s College London, to produce the report.
