The aim is to clarify the objectives and identify the areas that are priorities for action within the context of the NZ Framework for Dementia Care. The plan will provide Ministers with a clear sector-wide view of our priorities for improving the provision of supports and services for people with dementia and their support partners.

We expect that it will help shape activities under the refreshed Healthy Ageing Strategy’s Implementation Plan.
