Dementia Intervention Team
The Dementia Intervention Team (DIT) provides a community-based service to persons with dementia and their caregivers. A holistic assessment of the caregivers’ and care recipients’ situation, is carried out in the home, where the person with dementia is residing. Following an assessment, a care plan is tailor made for each case – which might include information and training; support, advice on safety and coping strategies for both the person with dementia and their caregivers. Ultimately, the main aim of the team of professionals is to enable people with dementia to continue actively ageing in the community.
