National framework for action on dementia 2015 - 2019

The National framework for action on dementia 2015 - 2019, produced by the Australian Department of Social Services, is designed to inform strategies and initiatives to: improve the community's understanding of dementia, including the risk factors of dementia, so they may take advantage of opportunities to reduce the risk of developing dementia, or delay its onset; improve access and provision to appropriate assessment and timely diagnosis services by skilled and knowledgeable professionals; improve access and provision to post-diagnosis information and support services for people with dementia; ensure that services are person centred and support engagement, good health, well-being and enjoyment of life; Increase understanding that dementia is a life-limiting condition that diminishes cognitive capacity over time.
