According to the World Health Organisation, there were 47.5 million people living with dementia worldwide in 2016, of whom between 28.5 and 33.3 million had Alzheimer's disease. The rate of increase of dementia disease indicates that any action taken to slow down the dementia process and keep the patient in the home environment for as long as possible is important at an individual level for the patient and their family and socio-economically in terms of the burden of having to provide institutional care.

In this context, the Masovian Social Policy Centre started a pilot project for older people suffering from dementia.  The pilot project covered 6 locations in the Masovian Province. The project was funded solely by the Masovian Provincial Government and amounted to approximately €4 million.
