Målet med Demensplan 2020 er å skape et mer demensvennlig samfunn, som tar vare på og integrerer personer med demens i fellesskapet. Dette krever større åpenhet og økt kunnskap om demens i samfunnet generelt og i helse- og omsorgstjenestene spesielt.

Med bakgrunn i brukeres og pårørendes behov, uløste utfordringer fra dagens plan og ny kunnskap har Demensplan 2020 seks strategiske grep:
• Selvbestemmelse, involvering og deltakelse
• Forebygging
• Diagnose til rett tid og tett oppfølging etter diagnose
• Aktivitet, mestring og avlastning
• Pasientforløp med systematisk oppfølging og tilpassede tjenestetilbud
• Forskning, kunnskap og kompetanse.
