Do you believe there is a lack of understanding around Alzheimer’s disease? Hello everyone, THIS POST HAS BEEN REVISED AND CHANGED, I DO APOLOGISE FOR ANY DISCOMFORT OR UPSET IT MAY HAVE CAUSED TO ANYONE. I am currently doing research for my university dissertation and i have based this around Alzheimer's Disease, I am aware of the fact that there are hundreds of types of dementia but i have based it on Alzheimer's disease for research purposes. From research into the topic there are views that there is a stigma around Alzheimer's disease, there are poll results showing that people seem to have a negative perception, claiming that you are not able to live a fulfilling life because of the diagnosis. This is untrue There have been numerous campaigns where the aim has been to teach the public and make them aware of dementia and the ways in which they can help to make the lives of people living with the diagnosis easier, they aim to simplify their lives. If more people understand then more people are willing to go the extra step and help. Do you believe there is a lack of understanding around dementia and Alzheimer's disease and how do YOU feel it can be changed?
