Sharing effective community-based support in dementia

7 June 2018 - 8 June 2018
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This conference presents an overview of the latest insights in the field of effective care and support for home-dwelling people with dementia and their informal carer(s).
There are many new types of interventions and services that aim to offer practical support to people with dementia and their informal carers and to make their life more comfortable and pleasant. For example: meaningful activities organised by welfare organisations and cultural facilities (such as museums), innovative technologies and initiatives for a more dementia-friendly society. But which of these work best in actual practice? Which are effective and should be made widely available for the target group?

The conference is intended for care providers, scientists and policy makers in the field of dementia care as well as for people with dementia and their informal carers.


Organization: Department of Psychiatry of VU University medical center/Amsterdam Public Health Institute, the MEETINGDEM network and Meeting Centers3.0
