DESK REVIEW | 07.04.09. Do these facilities offer dementia specific programmes/interventions? What kind of interventions are provided?

No dementia-specific programmes exist.

We are unable to identify relevant information to respond to this question.

None. Persons with dementia receive pharmacological treatment at the mental health clinic with the help of psychiatric nurses and psychosocial interventions for caregivers, delivered by psychologists.

To date, we are only aware of one research project carrying out dementia specific interventions. However, some residential LTC facilities, even when not specifically or exclusively designed for people with dementia but older adults in general, try to provide person-centred care.
