Dementia Villages

Last updated: October 24, 2019
Project Number: EH0071-000
Result type: Report

As the population ages, decision-makers are faced with different choices of care models for people diagnosed with dementia. Recent media reports have focused on dementia villages, first developed at de Hogeweyk in the Netherlands. This Horizon Scanning bulletin will present a narrative review of the literature describing elements of care, as well as evidence and issues concerning dementia villages and similar models or components of care. Stakeholder perspectives and an analysis of policy issues will also be incorporated.
