The current COVID-19 situation is extremely alarming as the world nations have not experienced anything like this in many decades. So far, the COVID-19 has affected more than two third of the world countries; both high-income as well as low- and middle-income countries are finding it hard to cope adequately with this crisis. There is no vaccination and no medicine available for the cure of COVID-19 available thus resulting in high infections rates and significant numbers of deaths all over the world.   

There are high-risk individuals that include elderly and patients with pre-existing medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease, elderly need to be given special attention and access to appropriate services. 

It is very important that people living with dementia and their carers are supported at this time.

Alzheimer’s Disease International has brought a timely and important video presentation on the continuity of care for people living with dementia during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

This video presentation is from Professor Huali Wang, Executive Vice President of Alzheimer’s Disease Chinese (ADC). In China, Professor Wang and her colleagues have experienced first-hand the challenges and responses to dementia care during the spread of the novel coronavirus.

In this video, Professor Wang explains how China has addressed the specific challenges of people living with dementia during unprecedented circumstances. Details, perspective and advice based on local experience are offered in the hope that it may help Alzheimer’s and dementia associations globally, as well as health and care professionals, people affected by dementia and their carers.
