ENIEC Website article Belgian-Dutch knowledge network on dementia amongst elderly migrants – 2017

  1. Exploring possibilities
    1. Belgian-Dutch knowledge network on dementia amongst elderly migrants 

On the 7th of September ENIEC members Saloua Berdai-Chaouni, Ann Claeys, Conny van der Aalsvoort and Jennifer van den Broeke came together with several Dutch experts in the field of dementia amongst the elderly with a migrant background. The meeting was organized to explore whether or not a Belgian-Dutch knowledge network on dementia amongst elderly migrants could be useful and worthwhile. We concluded we need more time to talk, but that the first meeting was promising. A next meeting will be at ‘Het Wereldhuis’ (Sefkat) in Boxtel. 

    1. Diversity Elderly Care (DEC)

On September 21st the DEC-community organized its first network event for professionals involved with dementia care in Brussels. Saloua Berdai-Chaouni and Ann Claeys welcomed the audience and presented the DEC project. Jennifer van den Broeke gave a presentation with the title: ‘Caring is done together’ a presentation with practical advice from the Netherlands. The event hosted three workshops on three themes: 

1) How to make dementia care in Brussels accessible.

2) What tools can be used to support people with dementia and their caregivers.

3) All people living in Brussels are responsible for high quality dementia care.
