Services for people with dementia

The Italian National Institute of Health (NIH), with mandate and funding by the Ministry of Health, carried out the first survey of all public and private health structures and social health structures available in Italy for people with dementia. The Italian NIH made also available, through the website “Dementia Observatory”, an online map including the addresses and other relevant information on all available services dedicated to dementias (centers for cognitive diseases and dementias CDCD, Daycare centers, Residential care facilities).

A total of 2594 health and social health structures totally or partially covered by the public healthcare service are included in the website of the Dementia Observatory, within an online map that allows to search by type of Service and by Region and Province and provides addresses and other useful information to access the services.

This activity is part of a project called “Survey of the social and health services dedicated to dementias and creation of a specific website called Observatory for dementias” that was assigned to the National Center of Epidemiology, Surveillance and Health Promotion of the National Health Institute, in the person Prof. Nicola Vanacore as principal investigator, within the 2013 central actions of the National Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CCM) of the Ministry of Health.

The project aims at providing an overview of all available health services and health and social services dedicated to dementias, making this information available online through a periodically updated dynamic map, and building the website Dementia Observatory including all information on this topic.

The online map is part of one of the objectives of the National Dementia Plan, promoted by the Ministry of Health in close collaboration with Regions, the National Health Institute, and the three national associations of patients and their families.

The map is available in the Italian section Mappa online dei Servizi of the website of the Dementia Observatory
