What about the care of older people from non-Western immigrant backgrounds? Find out during this lecture and join the discussion about the future.

Dementia is a common disease that occurs in the elderly. Fortunately, many dementia care services exist that help people cope with dementia. But what about the elderly from immigrant backgrounds? After all, this group is growing rapidly, increasing the need for care and support.

The evening of Monday, Dec. 12, will feature a lecture on dementia care for seniors with non-Western migration backgrounds. For example, Rayan Younis of the Leids Steunloket Migranten will present the concept of the elderly oasis 'activity center for the elderly' and Walter Schrader will be present, advisor and key supporter of the Leids Steunloket Migranten.

Afterwards there will be room for questions and you are invited to an enlightening discussion about the future. Will you join?
