There is no specific care coordination for people living with dementia. In the cases of the “Matriciamento em Saúde Mental”, there is neither supervision nor referral, it is a system that works horizontally, so when the family health team needs support regarding education, group intervention related to mental health etc., the “matriciamento” team is requested (Brazilian Ministry of Health, 2011b). The process through which different health and social care services which are relevant for people living with dementia should be coordinated/integrated is detailed in policies led by the Ministry of Health (Brazilian Ministry of Health, 2002, 2018e).
