Dementia in BME Groups

Race Against Dementia is an alliance of groups currently providing information and support to people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in the UK.

On the theme of healthcare for BME groups you may find the following interesting video called “Dementia Does Not Discriminate”
and an older video by the Runnymede Trust called Race and Dementia:
