This project is aimed to establish a partnership between the Municipality of Røyken in Norway and the Local Government of Kemecse as main partners. The Municipality of Kemecse as the health care centre of the small region in the Northern part of Hungary faces mayor difficulties in the field of providing support for the families and relatives of elderly people suffering from any forms of dementia. Alzheimer disease and other types of dementia have a negative effect not only on the lives of the patients, but also that of the relatives and family members looking after them. Institutional capacities are very limited and cannot provide sufficient support for the needs of the patients and their relatives.
The partnership will also involve the National Association of Small Local Governments in Hungary, which represents the community of municipalities with the highest need of support and innovative solutions.

The Municipality of Røyken with the support of the Norwegian Computing Centre, the second Norwegian partner and two other Norwegian municipalities have successfully created a digital training platform for relatives of elderly people suffering from dementia. The relevant knowledge and experience found in this project provides basis for the planned partnership.
The cooperation shall provide an effective foundation to elaborate an effective model of cooperation and development and thereby try out the foundation of wider and nation-wide initiative for one of the most challenging health diseases in Hungary.

The project is four months long and will involve the following main activities:
1. Joint exchange of experience and needs for support
2. Two site visits to explore the partnership and to complete long term cooperation plan
3. Communication of findings
4. Working out of a joint project plan targeted on Hungarian Municipalities and Involvement of Norwegian partners for the benefit of larger group of end users (relatives and families to people with dementia).
