Green for grey
This project documents the effects of greening on the quality of life with dementia (including the early stages) and quantifies them.
Does greening in the neighbourhood influence the quality of life with dementia (including the early stages)? And what savings would this lead to in health care costs and use of medication?
Around the world, much knowledge and experience have been gained in and around dementia gardens. The aim is to translate this knowledge into an innovative green concept and apply it in paved-over neighbourhoods with vulnerable elderly people in the Netherlands.
This is followed by quantification of the costs and benefits for:
- The elderly
- Their caregivers
