If you live with dementia, or care for someone who does, you’re invited to help develop a National Dementia Action Plan - that will guide the future of dementia care in Australia.
The Department of Health and Aged Care has released a National Dementia Action Plan Public Consultation Paper – and we’d like your feedback.
The deadline to provide feedback is Tuesday, 31 January 2023.
What is the National Dementia Action Plan?
The National Dementia Action Plan is a joint initiative between the Australian Government and state and territory governments.
The 10-year plan will put people living with dementia, their families, and carers at the centre of all action on dementia.
It will mean a better coordinated approach:
- to risk reduction
- early diagnosis
- improvements in services for those living with dementia, carers and family.
How do I get involved?
We recommend that you first read the National Dementia Action Plan Public Consultation Paper Summary.
You can give your feedback in one of the following ways:
- Complete a short, 15-minute online survey
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Post your feedback to National Dementia Action Plan, MDP 765, GPO Box 9848, Canberra ACT 2601
- Call 1800 565 789 and tell us what you think over the phone or request a hard copy of the paper and/or survey
What’s the deadline to provide feedback?
Public consultation closes on Tuesday, 31 January 2023.
