Innovative thinking, sharing ideas

Vision

Marius believes the key is knowledge, therefore we need to increase public awareness. At the same time, he thinks we need a better understanding of disease mechanisms and this is why we should invest in the research of dementia.

Strategy

Marius is currently working on the development of home-care networks at the national level. He thinks the provision of home-care services to dementia patients could increase their independence and would lead to better outcomes in healthcare.

Motivation

Dementia-related issues gain more public interest each year in Lithuania. The common understanding that integrated health services could provide specific help to individuals enables effective decision making.
