“Dementia Education and Care for Quality of Life”
Stiftelsen Silviahemmet was founded by HM Queen Silvia of Sweden. Early on the Queen realised that knowledge is a powerful tool for understanding, helping and providing good care for people with dementia. This insight was the start of the foundation and the school was inaugurated on Valentine’s Day 1996. Through various training initiatives, Silviahemmet’s aim is to contribute to the highest possible quality of life for those suffering from dementia, including their families.
Since 2006, Silviahemmet works with various training programmes. The Train the Trainer Programme has spread Silviahemmet’s philosophy of care to several countries. New trainers are annually examined at Silviahemmet and a successful examination enables them to provide training in their own country. Silviahemmet’s certification programme is also offered internationally. The first certification outside of Sweden was implemented in 2016 by Malteser Tagestreff in Bottrop, Germany.
