Does Luxembourg need a memory clinic?

More and more people are getting older. This also increases the risk of developing dementia. The DP MP Gusty Graas asked the Minister of Health how many people have taken part in the "Dementia Prevention Programme" so far and whether it would make sense to set up a memory clinic in this country.

Question

« L’évolution démographique se traduit par un nombre croissant de personnes de plus en plus âgées. La fréquence des maladies chroniques et le risque de démence augmentent également.

Afin de prévenir la démence, le ministère de la Santé a lancé en 2015 le « Programme Démence Prévention » (pdp).

À ce sujet, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Combien de personnes ont participé au « Programme Démence Prévention » depuis 2015 ?
  • Quel était l’âge moyen des participants au  « pdp » ?
  • Madame la Ministre, estime-t-elle que les personnes âgées de 30 à 40 ans devraient également être davantage sensibilisées à l’offre du « pdp » ?
  • Madame la Ministre, que pense-t-elle de l’idée de créer un Centre Mémoire (« Gedächtnisambulanz ») au Luxembourg ?»
