Older Irish people with dementia in England

The Irish community is the oldest minority ethnic community in Britain. Despite an older age profile than general or minority ethnic populations, as well as excesses of mental and physical ill-health and socio-economic disadvantage, the age, poor health and social profile of the community is largely ignored by policy makers and providers. Several of these factors predispose the Irish community in England to a higher incidence of dementia. Unlike other minority ethnic groups with growing numbers of people with dementia, the incidence of dementia is already high.
