Dementia: ethical issues

People with dementia, and those who care for them, face difficult ethical dilemmas on a day-to-day basis.

This report concludes that we need to do more as a society to enable people to live well with dementia. We present an ethical framework to help address problems that arise in connection with dementia care, together with recommendations for policy makers.
