For the foreseeable future, the number of people in the world living with dementia is expected to increase. It is important, therefore, that, in addition to the research on prevention, causes, potential drug treatments, and cures for the various types of dementia, that we also focus on providing better care for those already living with dementia. This Special Issue will address some of the key issues in care, including: Stigma; communication; environmental design to maximize capacities; quality of life, risks and governance; advanced care plans and a palliative approach to care.
Prof. Dr. Sampath Parthasarathy
