My survey on rights and dementia

This survey, which I am doing, is on rights and dementia.

This might mean rights you have a person living beyond a diagnosis of dementia (Kate Swaffer’s term) or as a carer.

This survey is not intended to make you feel bad in case you’ve never heard of these legal instruments or rights – simply answer ‘don’t know’. There’s no shame in that.

My view is that rights-based campaigning, which is adopted by the Scottish jurisdiction and increasingly by the English jurisdiction, is pretty rubbish unless people have heard of the rights which protect them.

The instruments referred to in this survey are rights includes ones which are automatically available to us, on the basis of being international instruments.

Thank you for your participation. It only takes a few minutes.
