- To develop a specific method that will help people with psychosocial problems caused from dementia, to improve their standard of living and gain confidence with their social integration.
- Training of professional carers and other stakeholders
- A better understanding of the disease and its consequences in order to maintain a good quality of life for patients and their autonomy.
