Letter sent (1280x1280)Yesterday, Eurodiaconia sent a letter to the Ministers of Health of the European Union, ahead of an informal meeting due to take place on 24-25 September 2015.

The letter calls for quality and innovative strategies to deal with persons with dementia more effectively. Many of our members provide support to people with dementia and their families, but they fear that these services are not sufficient to meet a growing demand, against the background of ageing population and public spending cuts.

In May, Eurodiaconia published a report titled “Supporting persons with dementia and their families: Good practice from Eurodiaconia members”. You can download it here.
