  • Scotland's National Dementia Strategy 2017-2020 launched

    Created: 28/06/2017

    Transforming services to ensure people with dementia get the support they need, at all ages and stages of the illness, is at the centre of Scotland’s third dementia strategy.

    The three key priorities under the new three-year strategy are:

    1. Continuing timely, person-centred and consistent treatment and care for people living with dementia and their carers, in all settings
    2. More progress on the provision of support after diagnosis and throughout the disease, taking account of individual needs and circumstances
    3. Responding to the increasing proportion of older people developing dementia later in life, often alongside other chronic conditions
