In China there are more than 9.19 million people living with dementia, a majority of these are taken care of by non professional caregivers at home. Care homes and other resources are however developing at a fast pace.
The first trained Silviahemmet instructors in China were certified by Dr. Hoffman, head of Stiftelsen Silviahemmet, in June 2012.
Today, more than 5,000 people in the Chinese elderly care sector have received training that approved by the Silviahemmet care philosophy.
Talengen Care was established in Beijing in 2011 to train employees and develop dementia care in China. The courses are based on the Stiftelsen Silviahemmet care philosophy for the care of people with dementia and are performed to staff in elderly care, as well as relatives and home carers.
