Swiss Alzheimer Association defies taboos in dementia
Monday 30 April 2012
Due to popular demand, the Swiss Alzheimer Association will organise further sessions of its seminar entitled "Taboos and Dementia". The first session attracted more than 350 participants and covered topics that remain hidden in the lives of many people who live with dementia.
These topics, including negligence, abuse, aggression and sexuality, were openly discussed among health professionals and caregivers. Their aim was to determine the causes and to develop ways of managing these forms of behaviour.
The new seminars will take place in Lausanne in May and Olten in June.
