Dementia in Europe yearbook 2019

 The following publication highlights continuing inequalities in access to dementia care and treatment across Europe.

-The objective of the “European Dementia Monitor” is to provide a benchmark of national dementia policies in order to compare and rate the responses of European countries to the dementia challenge.

-More specifically, the European Dementia Monitor 2023 assesses which countries provide the most dementia-inclusive policies and guarantee the best support and treatment of people with dementia and their carers.

-The Monitor found that, whilst a number of countries were able to improve the situation of people with dementia and their carers, progress was not the same across all European regions. This was also noted in the 2017 and 2020 editions.

-There is still a clear East/West divide in Europe, with most of the Western and Northern European countries scoring significantly higher than Eastern European countries.

-With continuing inequalities between European countries, Alzheimer Europe hopes that national governments will use this report to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers in those areas where they are currently lagging behind.

-As a rule, the Monitor found that countries with national dementia strategies scored better than those without.
