    Research Abstract

    DementiaNet improves local collaboration among healthcare professionals to provide care for community-dwelling elderly with dementia. Overall, the approach aims to reduce the burden of the disease for all persons involved in dementia care, including healthcare professionals, patients and their informal caregivers. Our mission is to deliver added value for patients, caregivers and society, by realizing an innovative cost-effective change in the care processes, realized by and fine-tuned for the locally collaborating professionals. We activate patients and carers, and start from their experiences and questions, which we adopt in line with network and system based methodologies.
