Nursing home admission can be considered one of the final complications of dementia, which is the subject of this chapter. It addresses in particular the care model for people with dementia as it has been developed in the Dutch nursing homes. This model is unique in the sense that the Netherlands, unlike most other countries, has a medical specialty that concentrates specifically on this patient population. It addresses this specialty first. Subsequently, it discusses several factors that have influenced the development and further elaboration of the medical care policy for nursing home patients with dementia. Against this background it explains how this care is given shape by Dutch nursing home medicine/elderly medicine.
