Vision Zero – an aim to strive for

 

With this this new book from Swedish Dementia Center we will inspire and give you tools to work person­centred. A person­centred care is the key to prevent difficult situations to arise, and is also a way to develop strategies to respond to them if they occur.

The book’s title is also our aim and something to strive for, Vision Zero: For Dementia Care without Restraint. Order the book from our webbshop » (new window)

 

About us 

Swedish Dementia Centre (SDC) is a non-profit organisation, established in 2008. The commission of creating a national centre for excellence in dementia care was given to two foundations, Silviahemmet and Stockholm Gerontology Research Center, by the Swedish government and commissioned by the National Board of Health and Welfare. SDC became an independent foundation in 2013.

SDC is financed through governmental support and grant organizations.

Our commission is to:

  • collect, structure and disseminate knowledge about dementia and dementia care
  • compile evaluations and research results
  • develop more practically orientated knowledge
  • facilitate translation of research and implementation of new knowledge into nursing and care, interventions and social policy
  • be a link between research, practice and decision makers
  • be the hub of a national network for research and development units.

  • be the hub of a national network for research and development units.

Our vision is to be a centre of excellence that gradually builds up a bank of knowledge within the area of dementia, and actively promotes development in care of persons with dementia – towards a more dementia-friendly society.

Our website is mostly in Swedish as our aim is to make information easily accessible to care providers and the general public. We do, however, offer information sheets in different languages. These cover different dementia-related topics and are free of charge to download. We will continuously post new subjects as soon as they become available.

You can find the information sheets here »
