Rights & Dementia with Howard Gordon
This is a regular monthly feature with Howard Gordon, looking at Rights and Dementia.
'Human rights' are the rights of every human being which is fundamentally important to all of us!
This is no different to us living with dementia, our family and friends. Laws to protect our rights are set by the United Nations, right through to UK, Scotland and local communities [e.g. Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2016)].
From our recent research (Deepness, 2021), we found that people living with dementia often live in fear and despair as our human rights are daily diminished, support and care varies according to where we live, we struggle to maintain our independence and there are only pockets of human rights.
Here is Howard's latest writing on Human Rights & Dementia (click on image).
