• Stigma and Dementia: South Asian and Eastern European family carers negotiating stigma in two cultures

      Mackenzie, Jennifer (2006)
      This article draws on findings from a three-year project to develop and deliver culturally appropriate support group materials for South Asian and Eastern European family carers of relatives with dementia living in the UK. Analysis of interview and field note data revealed insights into how understandings of dementia in different cultural contexts can become operationalized through stigma processes and in turn influence the ways in which people with dementia and their family carers engage with formal and informal support.
