The pilot project CONNECT, financed by the « Fondation du Grand-Duc et de la Grande-Duchesse », aims at developing a web platform offering an online forum, allowing exchanges regarding Alzheimer disease and other similar dementia disorders.Duration : January 2015 – August 2018

The CONNECT Project, initiated by Prof. Dieter Ferring (20.01.1958 - 03.08.2017), consists in launching a web platform which will inform and direct elderly individuals, as well as informal helpers and relatives directly or indirectly concerned by Alzheimer disease and other similar dementia disorders. This platform will contain, amongst others, an online forum to facilitate exchanges and shared experiences on this matter.

Alzheimer disease, as well as other similar disorders, have important consequences on affected individuals as well as on their relatives. Providing information on the disease, its symptoms and its consequences is essential to improve the quality of life of individuals suffering from dementia and their relatives. Another necessity is to take part in reducing social isolation, and stigmatization, which often occur following the diagnostic.

The CONNECT platform therefore aims at completing the offers existing at a national level, and the « Programme Démence Prévention » of Luxembourg, by promoting the bond and exchanges between diagnosed individuals, families, and professional caregivers for elderly people suffering from dementia. The CONNECT project is made of an interdisciplinary group, with expert knowledge in various and complementary domains, thanks to the participation of professionals caregivers for elderly individuals in Luxembourg (ALA, RBS - Center fir Altersfroen, ZithaSenior and Info-Zenter Demenz) as well as the “Ministry Family Affairs, Integration and the Greater Region and the Health Ministry.

The CONNECT project benefits from financial support from the Fondation du Grand-Duc et de la Grande-Duchesse.
