World Alzheimer Report 2012

Alzheimer's Disease International released the World Alzheimer Report 2012 to correspond with World Alzheimer's Day/Alzheimer's Action Day (Sept 21).  I just found the report today.  This year's report focuses on the stigma associated with  dementia and how dementia is viewed around the world.  In addition to reporting on the organization's findings, the report provides suggestions on how to break through the stigma we face as caregivers as well as individuals with dementia. If you don't want to read the full 80 page report, then check out the executive summary which may be easier to digest at 14 pages.

We've touched on the stigma surrounding dementia in our lives.  Fortunately, what we have experienced is nothing compared to others.
