The Asian population in the UK is ageing and increasing numbers of older Asian people are developing dementia and the need to provide culturally appropriate services is pressing. Also pressing is the need to raise awareness among Asian communities that the quality of life of dementia patients and their carers can be greatly improved, by accepting help and taking up services from local providers. So instead of looking at it as a social embarrassment it is important to take notice of the early signs of dementia so you can get the necessary help for your loved ones.
