Project Details


This short report is one of a series of reports arising from a study funded by the Scottish Funding Council Global Challenge Research Fund. The Project “Developing family and community capacity to provide evidence-informed advanced dementia care, and reduce risks of dementia related elder abandonment and abuse” was co-delivered as a partnership project between the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice at the University of the West of Scotland UK and the Manipal College of Nursing India. The Project responds to an urgent development need within India to develop dementia education aligned with the Global Sustainable Development Goals. The Project objectives focus on how advanced dementia is understood and experienced, the availability of advanced dementia care education and considers the potential usefulness of an existing portable education resource known as Class in a Bag.

This short report contextualizes dementia in India as a public health concern and scopes the current provision of dementia care services.
