  1. Development and consequences of group living in Sweden : a new mode of care for the demented elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    The process of developing a new mode of care for the demented elderly, group living (GL), is evaluated and the consequences discussed.

    The increasing proportion of very old persons in Sweden means a higher prevalence of dementia.

    The majority of patients in traditional institutional long term care show cognitive deterioration.

    An insufficient caring situation, both in quantity and quality has long been observed.

    This, and a better knowledge and understanding of dementing diseases, their symptoms and consequences, has been the impetus to develop an alternative care model, group living (GL), for well defined groups of demented elderly.
