Prevention, dementia-friendly communities and public awareness

2018: Comparsion of National Dementia Strategies

Many strategies dealt with the issues of prevention, dementia-friendly communities and public awareness in similar ways, primarily focusing on improving public awareness of the condition both as a means to recognise the disease and its symptoms (thus supporting timely diagnosis) but also to reduce societal stigma associated with the condition.

There are some overlaps with other areas, including work-force development, particularly in relation to awareness raising/training for non-health workers. In keeping with other sections of this report, where an issue could fall under multiple sections, its location has been determined by its location within its respective strategy.
