This policy is based on the recognition that current care services are inadequately developed and adapted to persons with dementia. In particular the policy sets out a programme of day facilities for people with dementia.

The strategies outlined include:

- Quality research, development and planning
- Capacity growth, raising skills and knowledge
- Improving collaboration and medical follow up
- Active care
- Partnerships with families and local community.
