Résumé :

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia raises awareness of dementia among parliamentarians, to influence legislation and policy, in order to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers. It has produced a report called 'Dementia rarely travels alone', which has found that over 60% of people living with dementia have three or more other health conditions, and seven in 10 people living with dementia are also living with another medical condition.

The report found that this is presenting a considerable problem for the professionals and family members who provide the medical and social care that individuals with dementia need. Health and social systems frequently treat conditions in isolation so that people with dementia and other health conditions receive disjointed, substandard care and treatment. Additionally, the current fragmented health and care system does not have the capacity to manage the complexity of these multiple conditions.

Dementia UK is pleased that the parliamentary group is drawing people's attention to the issue of dementia and co-morbidity, how common having multiple conditions with dementia is, and how there needs to be a more holistic approach to health and social care. However, we also want to highlight the need for specialist care management and the vital role of the Admiral Nurses in caring for families affected by dementia. (source : Dementia UK)
