Matia pioneered the change of model of care in Spain in 2010 towards a person-centred care model.

The Project "Supporting Inclusive Development of Community-Based Long-Term Care Services through Participatory Multi-Stakeholder Approaches (InCARE)" will provide proof of concept for a road map to inclusive LTC system development, promote multi-stakeholder national and international partnerships and support Long Term Care (LTC) policy processes and reforms. Based on a psychological support programme (SENDIAN), the Spanish pilot aims to support family caregivers of people with dementia within an integrated and person-centred service approach by:

• Providing social services with information about the person's needs.

• Identifying and mapping the social, health, community, neighbourhood, voluntary, etc. services in the context close to the person.

• Supporting the coordination of services.

• Facilitating referral procedures to the SENDIAN service.

• Accompanying the Social Services team in the management of the case.
