The objective of the Seoul Dementia Management Project is to cost-effectively manage dementia issues within the city in an integrated and systematical way. Unlike existing solutions, this project aims to provide solutions on a more fundamental basis through early detection for better treatment, rehabilitation support, and appropriate management for each different stage of the disease. This will dramatically reduce people's burden from dementia.
To achieve these goals, the Seoul Metropolitan Government is carrying out projects based on 3 basic principles: community based approach; integrative approach; and cost-effective approach. This is illustrated in the diagram below.
