Resumo

Visto que a demência é uma síndrome clínica terminal progressiva sem cura, a vida de pessoas com demência (PcD) pode ser afetada adversamente. Devido ao acesso limitado aos cuidados de saúde e à falta de informação no Paquistão, a maioria dos adultos mais velhos não faz o rastreio de demência. O objetivo do presente estudo foi examinar os problemas e a qualidade de vida (QV) de idosos carentes com demência leve não diagnosticada no contexto do Paquistão. Usando amostragem intencional e desenho de estudo de caso, 3 participantes com sintomas aparentes (verificados por 8 pesquisadores) de demência de um grupo de baixa renda em Lahore, Paquistão, foram observados e entrevistados. A análise temática revelou o sentido de perda e alienação como um dos temas dominantes. As implicações são discutidas.
