Background information about dementia and home care services
There is legislation in Turkey which regulates home care provided by private institutions. This legislation covers home care services in general for all types of patients. It does not specify conditions for old people or people with dementia, or refer to their specific needs. There is work in progress by the Social Services Department to improve shortcomings and to issue new legislation covering the social aspects of home care.
