Abstract [en]

The RTPC project also concerns the structure of long-term home and institutional care throughout the trajectory of dementia. To describe and analyse the European health, social care and welfare systems, advocacy and informal caregiver support systems for patients/consumers with dementia a template has been developed for the use of homogenous terminology, covering possible care and service interventions from diagnosis to end of life. The structure of the national health care and social service system was described as related to elderly in general and to people with dementia specifically. The system differs between the eight countries in particular in terms of the demands on informal caregivers, financially, the distribution and the emphasis on home care versus nursing home care. Resembling findings throughout the 8 countries were that few had a diagnosis at early disease stage, support to family caregivers still can be improved and palliative care concepts are sparsely applied.
