Dementia Community Support Scheme
Target users of the pilot scheme are those aged at 60 or above who are:
||Patients diagnosed of having mild or moderate dementia and referred by Geriatric/Psycho-geriatric Teams of the Hospital Authority (HA); or
||Members of the District Elderly Community Centres (DECC) suspected of suffering from early dementia.
HA/DECCs will assess the conditions of the patients/members and select suitable elderly persons to participate in the pilot scheme. At the initial stage of the pilot scheme, priority would be given to existing members of the DECCs who are also HA’s patients with mild dementia, as well as patients referred by HA.
