Wednesday, 08 January 2020, Forschen

The philosopher Martina Schmidhuber addresses the needs of persons with declining mental ability as well as their relatives providing care

Because we are living longer and longer, the likelihood of developing dementia is increasing. But recognizing this cognitive limitation doesn’t mean that our lives will be over. Instead, it’s much more important to ask how we deal with this limitation and how we create adequate environments for those affected. The challenge in Health Care Ethics is to take these points into account and find ways to make our society more “dementiafriendly”

Martina Schmighuber is philosopher and professor for Health Care Ethics and addresses the needs of persons with declining mental ability as well as their relatives providing care. Working in the area between theoretical and clinical research, she presents the patients’ positions based on research findings in the humanities to give them as many opportunities to make decisions as possible
