Women and dementia: a global research overview

The Alzheimer’s Society has published an international perspective on the impact of dementia on women.

The report examines the effect of gender on three specific groups: women living with dementia, women caring for people with dementia in a professional caring role and women undertaking an informal caregiving role for someone with dementia. It also focuses on cross-cutting issues, including factors affecting women in low and middle income countries, family structures and kinship, and the effects of migration.
