Major objectives The Dementia Strategy concerns people with dementia, informal and formal carers, health care and social care professionals and service providers, the public, and (political) decision makers on national and regional level.
Short Summary The Austrian Dementia Strategy „Living well with dementia“ provides a framework of objectives and recommendations for taking action to improve the lives of people with dementia as well as their families and carers. In six working groups, persons with dementia, (political) decision makers as well as experts developed objectives and recommendations for action. The work process took place between March and October 2015 and comprised 18 workshops (3 per working group). Results were presented in a report, which underwent a comprehensive online consultation process. About 600 responses from all relevant stakeholders contributed to the further development of the strategy.
