COVID-19: Sharing experience and advice from ADI's member association in China

16 March 2020 – With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect more people and more countries each day, it is vital that work and support continues for people living with dementia and their carers. As result, ADI brings to you a timely and important video presentation on the continuity of care for people living with dementia during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

ADI is extremely grateful to Professor Huali Wang, Executive Vice President of ADI’s member association in China, Alzheimer’s Disease Chinese (ADC), for recording this short presentation which has global relevance. Over the last few month, Professor Wang and colleagues have experienced first-hand the challenges and responses to dementia care during the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Paola Barbarino, Chief Executive of ADI, is calling on the solidarity of the community that supports and is focussed on dementia at this time. See Paola’s introduction to Professor Wang’s presentation here.     

In this 30 minute presentation, Professor Wang explains how China has addressed the specific challenges of people living with dementia during unprecedented circumstances. Details, perspective and advice based on local experience are offered in the hope that it may help Alzheimer’s and dementia associations globally, as well as health and care professionals, people affected by dementia and their carers.

Professor Huali Wang’s contact details are available at the end of the presentation for those that may have further questions.
