CASCADE stands for Community Areas of Sustainable Care and Dementia Excellence in Europe.
The CASCADE Model promotes a holistic, person-centred approach for people living with dementia to maximise independence and quality of life. The model is based on five fundamentals:
- Focusing on individual abilities and what the person ‘wants’ to do
- Personalised holistic care
- Living life to the fullest
- Positive public perception
- Safe environment for independent living
