Over 50 million people worldwide are living with dementia, with numbers growing steadily. However, not everyone receives a diagnosis, and those with a diagnosis might struggle to access some types of support, ranging from peer support groups, day care centres, respite, and paid home care, to care homes. Burgeoning evidence suggests that people’s backgrounds are linked to what they can access. Some barriers to receiving a diagnosis or the right level of care at the right time might include ethnic background, socio-economic status, education, or where people live—in rural or urban regions. Moreover, there might be further inequalities when looking at low- and middle-income countries.
This Special Issue on “Health Inequalities in Dementia Care” welcomes submissions in this field, to cover the broad spectrum of inequalities. We are interested in qualitative and quantitative research and look forward to receiving a wide range of submissions.
