From May 29 to June 2, 2017, the second study trip on the topic of caring for people with dementia at acute-care hospitals will take place in Norway.
People with dementia are at much higher risk than their peers of being admitted to the hospital within a year. If their specific needs are not recognized during their hospital stay, this may lead to a deterioration in their dementia. It is therefore of crucial importance to raise awareness among all professions involved and to ensure integrated care. It is worth taking a look at Norway in this regard. Here, a multifaceted care concept has established itself that includes numerous services to enable lasting, integrated, and coordinated care for people with dementia.
