This strategy aims to address three challenges:
-To provide personal and flexible support for people living with dementia across a range of settings, including home and hospital.
-To build on the progress made around support after diagnosis and throughout the course of the illness.
-Finally, to respond to the increasing proportion of older people with dementia.
