For the RECAGE project we are estimating the cost-effectiveness of a special medical care unit for patients with Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD). This will be done in a prospective cohort study, comparing the activity of the centres endowed with a typical special medical care unit with that of the other participating centres lacking this facility.

We expect an improved quality of life of persons with dementia, lessening caregivers’ burden, and possibly delaying institutionalisation.
