Multicultural dementia care
Care and implementation for older migrants with dementiaPublication date: 01 September 2014
Dementia among migrants is an increasingly topical issue. Often elderly migrants with dementia lose their possibilities to speak Dutch during the ever progressing process of dementia and they (partly) relapse to their native language. Care workers are then unable to communicate in the language of the client, unless they speak the same language as the client. Research Centre Innovations in Care is researching as to how the welfare of, and health care for, older migrants with dementia should be shaped and realised.
