ADI position papers on dementia and COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, ADI has sought to highlight some important issues affecting people living with dementia. These issues relate to difficult decisions around hospital admissions, triage and the allocation of health resources. The resulting publications take the form of two short papers. The first provides guidance for people with dementia and their families, helping them to consider key issues when planning dementia care during COVID-19. The second is intended to compliment the first by providing an ethical backdrop around health resource allocation, quality of life and transparency in decision-making. It will be especially relevant to organisations advocating for people with dementia and their carers.
