Dementia in Europe Yearbook 2022: Employment and related social protection for people with dementia and their carers

Previous editions of the Alzheimer Europe Yearbook included examinations of “social support” in 2007 and 2008, looking at the full range of supports available to people, including financial support, supports and services. For the purposes of this Yearbook, the focus will be narrower, exclusively examining policies as they relate to employment (relevant for people with dementia and their carers), whilst focusing on a specific aspect of social protection, i.e. those specifically given based on a person’s disability and/or inability to work – sometimes referred to as earningsreplacement benefits.
