MUKES: Multicultural Memory Centre - The Finnish Society for Memory Work

The aim of the Multicultural Memory Centre - The Finnish Society for Memory Work is to ensure that people from ethnic minority backgrounds with dementia get a timely and accurate diagnosis. The Multicultural Memory Centre MUKES supports social and health care professionals and students by raising awareness of cultural sensitive memory work. We also raise awareness of older people from minority ethnic groups about brain health, memory disorders and dementia. Our primary goal and focus are to continue to support older people from different language and cultural minorities and to create a memory centre that best suits their needs.
