Dementia villages and other modern forms of residential care for persons with dementia - Protocol for a systematic review - project description
A doubling of people with dementia is expected in Norway by the year 2050, and there is a great need to find satisfactory ways to care for these people. In recent years, dementia villages and other.
modern forms residential care have been developed, with the aim of giving people with dementia a better life. Modern forms of residential care are characterised by deliberate adaptation of the living environment, communal areas, outdoor areas and the local environment. However, we lack knowledge about the effect of these modern forms of residential care compared to traditional residential care offers, such as nursing homes. The purpose of this systematic review is to examine the effect of dementia villages and other modern forms of residential care for people with dementia, compared with traditional residential care offers.
We will conduct a systematic literature search in electronic databases. We will include randomised- and non-randomised studies examining the effect of modern forms of residential care, for people with dementia, on health-related outcomes for residents and burden of care for informal caregivers. We will assess the studies' risk of bias and extract and analyse data from the included studies. If possible, we will pool the results in meta-analyses.
We will also rate our confidence in the results by assessing the certainty of the overall evidence by using the GRADE approach (Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation).
Finally, we will present the included studies and overall results in a report
