Dementia care: Alzheimer villages and innovative models
|When||Friday 16 July 2021 from 8:00am - 10:00am|
Currently, 50 million people are living with Alzheimer's, according to the World Health Organization. In France, 200.000 new cases of Alzheimer's add up each year, currently reaching 1.2 million citizens. Studies show that 43% of this population needs a high level of care equivalent to that of a nursing home, adding dramatically to the pressure on the dementia care sector.
This unsettling context has urged the French department of the Landes to think out of the box in the expansion of its dementia care offer. The Village Landais Alzheimer is the outstanding outcome of this effort, a new model combining efficiency and quality of life in dementia care.
As part of your registration, you will get access to an exclusive case study of the first French dementia village launched in May 2020, through a sequence of short videos, guiding you step by step, at your own pace.
