Culture change

The number of people from minority ethnic groups who are living with dementia is rising steeply, yet awareness levels and diagnosis rates are worryingly low. An Alzheimer's Society project , The Information Programme for South Asian Families (IPSAF), which provides culturally tailored information information sessions aims to help solve this problem. The service comprises a series of face-to-face sessions which helps carers to build their understanding, knowledge and skills of dementia. An educational DVD is also provided for carers to take home and share with family members. The programme was developed after consultation with 120 people with dementia, carers and professionals.
