We are organising a Special Issue on “The Lived Experiences of People Living with Dementia and Their Caregivers” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. This is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, please see https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Dementia continues to present a major public health challenge worldwide. The condition can lead to difficult health trajectories, and people living with dementia as well as their families often experience economic strain, social exclusion and reduced quality of life. Research into the diverse experiences of dementia is vital to informing compassionate and effective community responses that address the needs of those affected and better enable them to continue living active and meaningful lives.
For this Special Issue, we are seeking research that illuminates the experiences and perspectives of people who are living with dementia and of their informal or family caregivers. We are particularly interested in the use of novel techniques to explore lived experiences, such as the arts; examples of how research has translated into policy or best practice; and research considering diversity within communities. However, this Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the title and keywords, and we invite your contributions
