Dementia has been widely explored 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 socio-political 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. It will be of keen interest to health and social care professionals, policy makers, academics, and researchers, and people with dementia and family carers will find it revitalizing.
