National Dementia Plans
There is no state-developed or state-confirmed national strategy. In 2010 the Turkish Alzheimer Society, Alheimer Dernegi, developed a national strategy. The main pillars are a) to enhance efforts for increasing awareness at all levels of society b) to support development of respite care, day care centres and nursing homes in terms of care, c) better training of primary care physicians, in particular of newly established family physicians in terms of diagnosis d) To increase co-operation with legislators in order to improve legislation in support of people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families.
