PROJECT 

The Lituf program is designed to support caregivers of people with dementia. After assessing the dementia patient and main caregiver’s needs, a treatment plan is developed for the caregiver and other relevant family members to equip them with practical tools to cope with dementia and information about other services available in the community. The program offers six 90-minute counseling sessions and follow-up telephone sessions.

Lituf is designed to:

– Support people with dementia so that they can remain at home with caregivers rather than moving to an institution.
– Reduce the emotional burden for caregivers and improve their capabilities to care for the person with dementia.
– Improve caregivers’ preparedness and ability to manage crisis situations, thereby reducing the incidence of abuse and neglect.

The program has served some 260 families since it was initiated in 2016 and the feedback has been very positive.

“The sessions helped me to better understand dementia and how to deal with everyday challenges. As a result, I witnessed an improvement in my partner’s condition. The sessions exceeded my expectations and were delivered sensitively and professionally.”
“D” – the partner of an elderly person with dementia

“I found the sessions very helpful. The social worker was a wonderful listener who suggested different ways for me to cope and care for my mother. Before I started the program, I felt helpless and unqualified; now I feel equipped to manage. The program has been life-changing.”
“R” – the daughter of an elderly woman with dementia
