Skyrocketing Alzheimer’s rates to burden world’s caregivers, study says

“People with dementia have special needs. Compared with other long-term care users they need more personal care, more hours of care, and more supervision, all of which is associated with greater strain on caregivers, and higher costs,” the report’s author, Dr. Martin Prince, a professor at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, said in a statement. “We need to value the unpaid contribution of family caregivers more, and reward paid caregivers better. We can build quality into our care systems, but to do so while containing costs and achieving equity of access for all will be a challenge.”
