Hidden no more: Dementia and Disability
With 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) welcomes findings from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia’s newest report, Hidden no more: Dementia and disability. This report serves as an important reminder that dementia is a disability under UK legislation and International convention, and should be respected as such in both policy and practice. In contrast to the medical model, this report views disability as the societal barriers a person faces, not by impairment. ADASS calls on all local authorities and partner agencies to actively engage with the report’s recommendations to help eradicate social barriers and stigma, thereby enabling people to live well with dementia in our communities.
