Project Description

This comparative anthropological study will take an eco-social approach to understand how social, cultural, economic, political and environmental contexts shape people’s experiences and decisions about future care in the context of dementia in Australia, India, and Malaysia. Dementia is the leading cause of neuro-disability internationally and this is projected to rise in future, especially in low and middle-income countries. Such increases present challenges for governments and communities alike. Using comparative ethnographic methods, the project will generate new knowledge on how people with dementia-related neuro-disability make use of their resources to enhance wellbeing, now and into the future.
