Swedish Brain Power has long called for Sweden to establish a national dementia plan. Now, one seems to be on the way.
“There are increasing numbers of people with memory diseases in Sweden. Therefore, it is important to have knowledge and a plan for how to handle these in the best possible way, “says minister Åsa Regnér to Current Affairs in Politics.
Last week, the National Board of Health and Welfare transmitted its report on dementia care to minister Åsa Regnér. According to the Board, there is a lack of knowledge about dementia in all professional groups.
“Several other countries already have a national dementia plan and it is important that Sweden also gets one,” says Regnér, who hopes to get it in place during this term of office.
