Publication type: Case Study

In a nutshell: This Admiral Nurse case study looks at using a culturagram assessment framework to understanding the families’ culture and ethnic background in the experiences of dementia and caring. It states that over the next 30 years there will be an eight-fold increase in dementia among black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, compared to a two-fold increase in white British people. The culturagram was found to be a more comprehensive assessment which ensured that the dementia care offered was more sensitive to cultural and ethnicity factors.
