Broadening the dementia debate: Towards social citizenship

Ruth Bartlett


Dementia has been widely debated from the perspectives of biomedicine and social psychology. This book broadens the debate to consider the experiences of men and women with dementia from a sociopolitical perspective. It brings to the fore the concept of social citizenship, exploring what it means within the context of dementia and using it to re-examine the issue of rights, status(es), and participation. Most importantly, the book offers fresh and practical insights into how a citizenship framework can be applied in practice.

Keywords: dementia, sociopolitics, social citizenship, rights, status, participation, citizenship framework
