In addition to scientific papers, the project will deliver user-friendly tools for persons with dementia and their relatives, practical tools for the professionals and modules for (continuing) education. This way, other persons with dementia and their relatives can profit from this research project as well.
Current dementia care is primarily reactive, taking over the care of people with dementia and their informal carers. In this project, the project group is investigating how people with dementia and their relatives can remain vital and self-sufficient. They also explore how relatives, neighbours and friends can help, and how the environment in which people with dementia and their relatives live, can be made more dementia-friendly.
