The Public Health Institute’s Program for Alzheimer’s Disease

SHARE data has been used as the basis for the program “Improving the care for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias”. The program is coordinated by the Department of Public Health Gerontology at the 'Andrija Stampar' Teaching Institute of Public Health, City of Zagreb. The gerontological activity of the Department has a long tradition since 1978 and has been recognized by the appointment of the Reference Centre of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Croatia for the protection of the health of the elderly since 2002. The work of the Department is organizationally structured through two departments, and the employees are of different professional profiles: specialist doctors, graduate nurses, technicians, nutritionists and economists, all of them educated in gerontology and geriatrics.
