Living at home longer with dementia in Rotterdam
Pilot projectPublication date: 01 July 2015
In the spring of 2013, health insurance company Zilveren Kruis/ Achmea and the municipality of Rotterdam concluded the covenant “Working on a healthy Rotterdam together”. From the assumptions that people grow old more pleasantly in their own familiar surroundings and that living at home longer involves lower costs than intramural care, the ambition is to postpone or acquit intramural admission. Additionally, the aim is to organise health care and support at home so that this can be effectuated in a pleasant and safe manner.
