Background

2020: Policy briefing on intercultural care and support

The number of people over the age of 60 in the European Union has risen considerably3 and this trend is likely to continue.  Many people who migrated to Europe in the 1960s to 1980s are now reaching an age at which the likelihood of developing dementia is significantly higher1,4. Some ethnic groups are at higher risk of developing dementia, with a higher prevalence of dementia in certain ethnic groups compared to others having been reported.5 Some groups are less visible and their needs and interests risk being further overlooked, such as people from Traveller communities, people from the Deaf community and people from various predominantly White communities, such as Russia and Ireland.
