RemoDem - Support for people with dementia in remote areas

The Remodem project will develop and test an integrated service package for people with dementia living in remote rural communities which allows and supports them to continue living in their current homes and postpones their placement in institutional care. This will be achieved through modules of support incorporating tested ICT-services. The modules will give people with dementia improved access to qualified dementia-specific community support and enable more cost-efficient care. The modules will respond both to the direct support needs of people with dementia and the needs of others who support them among family and friends, health and care professionals, and care providers. The project is transnational and involves partners in Scotland, Sweden, Norway, The Faeroe Isles and Greenland.
