The main focus of the Victorian dementia action plan is people with dementia, and their families and
carers. Improving their quality of life requires better awareness, knowledge and responses from all
service, community and business sectors and the population as a whole.

Government, the private sector, hospitals, legal entities, transport providers, planners and community groups all have a role to play in creating communities and environments that are friendly for older people including people with dementia.

A shared understanding of person-centred holistic support and care, coordinated services,
partnerships, enablers and outcomes is integral to facilitating and shaping meaningful action.
This plan aims to bring consistency to these concepts, and provide a strong platform for achieving
the vision.
