Abstract

The provision of physical, mental and social care to people with Alzheimer's disease is a major public health challenge. With the awareness of progressive neurological disorders and their consequences, the personal and psychological dimension of each patient must lie at the heart of the care provided throughout the disease's progression. This personalisation can have positive clinical effects while helping to preserve as much as possible the dignity of the people concerned.
