Community care for people living with dementia in Europe

2016-01-01 - 2016-12-31

The focus of formal care provision for people with dementia in Europe is increasingly attuned to the home environment and to the local, community sphere as the locus of care. Using qualitative methods, the study develops a conceptual framework for community care for people with dementia which emphasises the dynamic care and support needs of the person with dementia and their family carer(s) over the trajectory of the disease, and articulates how the roles and interaction between different stakeholders within the community shifts as a result of these changing needs.
