Abstract english

There is a knowledge gap with regard to the structure of the care and service system available to persons with dementia. This is very much a concern for nurses who are the main providers in the care of dementia. The study, a part of the "RightTimePlaceCare" project, describes the development and content of a mapping system aimed at exploring the content of care and service for persons with dementia and their informal caregiver throughout the disease trajectory. The usefulness of the mapping system is illustrated in describing the availability of care and service at the diagnostic stage, and at the institutional and palliative stages.
