dc.description.abstractPrevious literature confirms that older black minority ethnic populations are less likely than white populations to contact dementia services in the UK. However, it is unknown whether this is due to a higher or lower prevalence of dementia or due to different needs or coping strategies within these communities. The aim of this study was to explore the understanding and perceptions of dementia amongst Sikhs living in the UK. Six focus groups were involved with 28 Sikh participants who were recruited from Gurdware (Sikh places of worship). Data were analysed using constant comparative methodology. The themes reported in this paper include ôawareness and interpretation of the characteristics of dementiaö, ômultiple perspectives of the same symptomsö and ôcauses of dementiaö. The findings have been discussed in the context of existing research and provide an introductory insight into informing culturally appropriate interventionslanguage
