Dementia is one of the key challenges for aging societies worldwide. Research plays an important part in encountering the key question of early diagnosis, treatment, and appropriate care for the increasing number of patients as well as effective support for caregivers. In September 2011, the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) had invited to an international workshop in Greifswald, Germany. Experts from Europe and abroad met to share evidence-based knowledge and experience.
The present book is the summary of this meeting and presents an up to date overview in dementia care research. Each participating country has advanced differently towards finding solutions, and the book reflects that there is neither THE typical person with dementia, nor THE typical treatment or care. There is neither THE research question nor THE health care system that will solve the challenge. However, innovative approaches are presented, leaving the reader well informed and stimulated.
