Welcome to Act on Dementia

The aim of the Act on Dementia Joint Action is to promote collaborative actions among Member States to improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers.

Diagnosis and post-diagnostic support

Better care planning facilitated by post-diagnostic support can reduce health and social care expenditure on preventable hospital visits and residential care admissions.

Crisis and Care Coordination

Crisis support models can reduce strain on care-delivery systems by incorporating non-pharmacological interventions, assisting families with communication, and reducing family distress.

Residential Care

it is important to ensure high quality professional care, including palliative care, delivered with dignity and compassion is available in residential and nursing care establishments.

Dementia Friendly Communities

Communities which are 'dementia friendly' can help to support people with dementia to live more independent and fulfilling lives in their own communities.
