Abstract: Dementia is a group of brain disorders that results in progressive deterioration of cognitive functions leading to significant socio-economic consequences. In Malta, the smallest of the EU-member states, the number of people with dementia is expected to double by the year 2035 reaching 2% of the general population. This will put considerable demands on family and informal carer-givers as the majority of care for Maltese people with dementia is provided at home. The objective of this study was to investigate the experiences of people with dementia who continue to live in the community and their family care-givers in Malta.
