Doctor in the House: Understanding Dementia as a Disability

An ageing population means more of us are familiar with dementia, and it’s easy to understand dementia from a clinical perspective, in that it leads to impaired cognitive and physical abilities in that individual. But what would it mean to look at dementia through a disability lens? How does that also help us better understand and support care partners for people with dementia? In conjunction with International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3rd December), we speak to Sharifah Tahir, a care partner and a dementia advocate for her perspective on this.
