Policy Influence and Outcomes for People with Dementia

Informed, inclusive national strategies, founded on human rights, and mechanisms to ensure their application, have been pivotal in transforming the way life with dementia is viewed and experienced in Scotland.

This study tour theme explores these frameworks and demonstrates the central influence of the active voice of people with dementia and their carers. The route from policy to a more positive experience of living with dementia is considered in detail, exploring Alzheimer Scotland models of support and how they are being applied. This includes the world’s first Government led commitment on post-diagnostic support.
