Description of the organization
The Fanders Centre of Expertise on Dementia and the regional centres of expertise are based on a person-centered care vision with respect for individuals' life stories, needs and preferences. We do this by sharing useful knowledge with people throughout the health and welfare sector: informal caregivers, volunteers, healthcare professionals, researches and people with dementia. This knwoledge is inspired by literature and best practices, preferably using a bottom-up approach.

We focus on today's individuals with dementia with their needs and abilities. This also means that we constantly keep our eye on the quality of life of people with dementia. We love clear simplicity, so that the people caring for a person with dementia are optimally informed of the current developments in science, care and support. That is why we like to look ahead and we want to be a leader in our field in Flanders. We want to stimulate debate on how to organize care and support to improve the daily livers of vulnerable people. And every now and then, we dream that dementia will be treatable one day, that each person will experience his of her care as excellent. Meanwhile, we try to build on a better quality of life for people with dementia and their families today.

Our centre is recognized as a partner organisation of the Flemish Authority.
