AMIDE: Approaching Multi-Ethnicity and Dementia in Education and Work

Dementia is becoming one of the major causes of dependency among older people worldwide and the number of people suffering from dementia and needing care is constantly increasing.

In many countries in Europe, this challenge is combined with the challenge of handling multi-culturality and multi-ethnicity among care staff, among the residents at care homes and the elderly receiving home care - and among the relatives of these.

The overall objective of our project is to contribute to the improvement of competences among teachers and trainers, who are educating and training basic care staff and among professional caregivers with regard to multi-ethnicity/multi-culturality and dementia.

Another objective is to strengthen in general the cooperation between care work and care education, build new links and establish new permanent fora.

The project is carried out in collaboration with partners from Italy, Germany and Latvia and supported by the Erasmus+ program.


Each partner is participating with two partners each: One partner is representing working life (care homes) and one representing education.
