Lithuania takes its first steps towards a national dementia plan

Tuesday 20 April 2021

Lithuania is one of few countries in the European Union (EU) without a national dementia plan, dementia-related services are concentrated around patient care, and social care and support is fragmented. To try to move things forward, a new association, Dementia Lithuania, was formed in early 2021, aiming to represent people living with dementia and their carers, locally and internationally.

Dementia Lithuania has now launched a project, “Towards Dementia Strategy: Situation Analysis and Public Awareness.” This project, which is supported by the European Economic Area (EEA) financial mechanism and will be implemented in 2021-2023, aims to advance the national dementia strategy development and dementia advocacy in Lithuania by implementing objectives outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO):

1)       to undertake a situation analysis

2)       to create recommendations for dementia strategy development

3)       and to raise awareness around dementia in Lithuania.
