Christina Kuhn (Cultural Studies, Educational Science) is researcher and educator at Demenz Support Stuttgart, a German DSDC. Since 2006 a major focus of her work has been on so-called «care oases», a new concept of care for people in their late stages of dementia. Together with Anja Rutenkröger (also Demenz Support Stuttgart) she completed the first evaluation of an oasis in Germany (Evaluation Holle, financed by the Ministry of Social Affairs, Women, Family and Health in Lower Saxony) and, just recently, of two newly established oases in Luxembourg. The Demenz Support “Oasis Team” has joined forces with other scientists and researchers in a Work Group dedicated to the scientific assessment of this new care setting.
