Informal care participation
If a patient who has dementia is accompanied by their informal carer during their hospital stay, this may prevent him or her from feeling confused and agitated. As an informal carer, you are an essential part of the continuity of care for your loved one.
Learn more in the leaflet below about participation as an informal carer in the care trajectory of a person who has dementia.

Dialogue cardDialogue card
Dialoguing together is important for cooperation in health care. What are the expectations? Are we headed in the same direction?
This is why we developed 'Dialogue’ (Samenspraak). This is a card that helps informal carers, those in need of care as well as professional care providers enter into dialogue as equal partners. It makes the experiences and expectations of the various parties discussible.
Dialogue is the result of an action study by the Support Centre for Wellness, Public Health and Family as part of the Flemish Caregiver Plan.
