Stigma and dementia: East European and South Asian family carers negotiating stigma in the UK

This article draws on findings from a three-year project to develop and deliver culturally appropriate support group materials for South Asian and Eastern European family carers of relatives with dementia living in the UK. Analysis of interview and field note data revealed insights into how understandings of dementia in different cultural contexts can become operationalised through stigma processes and in turn influence the ways in which people with dementia and their family carers engage with formal and informal support.

Awareness and understanding of dementia in African/Caribbean and South Asian families

The objective of this study was to explore awareness, recognition and understanding of dementia symptoms in families of South Asian and African/Caribbean descent in the UK.

Thirty carers of a person with dementia of South Asian and African/Caribbean heritage were interviewed.
