Description

This strategy highlights various measures which will be implemented in order to enhance the
quality of life of individuals with dementia, their caregivers and family members. The
multifaceted nature of dementia necessitates a multidisciplinary approach to dementia
management and care.

The vision of this strategy is for people in various sectors of society to come together and create a system whereby individuals with dementia have access to the support and care they require. Dementia also has a profound effect on relatives and caregivers and thus this strategy aims to address their needs as part of the holistic approach to dementia care.
