Project: Research


The overall aim of the RightTimePlaceCare project was to improve health care service in the European Health Systems for European citizens with dementia and develop best practice strategies for individualized home care. The strategies were also to ensure the best available outcomes for persons with dementia and their informal caregivers at affordable cost-benefit ratios, focusing on the transition from long-term formal professional home care to institutional long-term nursing care facilities. In addition, the project allowed countries to learn from the experience of other health care and social service systems including the sustainability of the systems.
The countries included in the project were Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Seven universities and one University hospital (Spain) participated in the RightTimePlaceCare project. The project consisted of the following six parts: management of the consortium; description of health care structures; clinical data collection; economic evaluation; best practice strategies; and dissemination.
