Psychologist Liselot Kerpershoek of Maastricht University speaks in a Dutch newspaper about some of the early findings from the Actifcare project in Limburg in the Netherlands.

Highlights of the article include:

– Day care and home care options are often rejected by people with dementia

– Caregivers often want to continue to do everything themselves until a crisis occurs, but the Actifcare project is trying to establish how their needs could be supported to avoid reaching this point.

– A greater need for customised day and home care is evident, although views differ among professional caregivers as to what they care should be and when it should be provided.
