Learn about characteristic of care farming and how this model supports dementia care residents in The Netherlands
In the Netherlands, there are over 1,000 green care farms, of which approximately 250 provide care activities for people with dementia. Recently, some green care farms were established to provide 24-hour care and are seen as an alternative to other institutional long-term care settings. Green care farms are a new initiative and originated outside the healthcare sector.
