Norway publishes new Dementia Plan 2025

Wednesday 02 December 2020

The Norwegian Government has published its new Dementia Plan 2025, outlining how the country’s approach to dementia policy up to 2025. The development and publication of the new strategic document follows a positive evaluation of the previous Plan (which ran until 2020), building on previous areas of work. The Dementia Plan 2025 outlines three key goals:

  • People with dementia and their relatives receive a timely diagnosis and receive high quality and personalised services
  • People with dementia and their relatives are able to participate in a dementia-friendly society that allows them to live an active and meaningful life, with physical, social and cultural activity adapted to individual interests, desires and needs
  • Increased research and knowledge about prevention and treatment of dementia.

To achieve these aims, the Norwegian Dementia Plan 2025 contains four main focus areas:

  • Co-decision making and participation
  • Prevention and public health
  • High-quality and coordinated services
  • Planning, skills and knowledge development.

Under each area, the long terms strategic approach is outlined, followed by specific measures which seek to achieve the vision articulated. You can read the full Plan here (in Norwegian):
