The Dementia Service Centre run since 2011 by Diakoniewerk in the city of Wels informs about dementia and how to deal with it and helps relatives and careers to better meet the diverse requirements of these patients.
The centre offers gerontopsychological diagnosis and testing by professionals, as well as concrete activities to change perspectives and build empowerment such as “Alzheimer cafés”, dance classes, trips, etc. These low-threshold services aim to increase the quality of life of people with dementia and their care environment (relatives, neighbours) and at the same time tackle the taboo around the disease.
People with dementia and their care environment represent a heterogeneous group with different needs in different situations. Top-quality monitoring, assistance, support and care of people with dementia are provided through different sets of technical, organisational and social activities. Therefore, the project is designed as a chain of services to meet the needs of a variety of people, to support them in their individual situation.
Diakoniewerk is a charity, member of Diakonia Austria, working with people with disabilities and elderly in Upper Austria, Salzburg, Styria, Tyrol and Vienna.
