Nova Scotia begins work on dementia strategy to be unveiled next year

HALIFAX - The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia and provincial government are co-leading an advisory committee in an effort to devise the province's first plan to care for people with dementia.

Health Minister Leo Glavine says the committee members will soon be named and give advice on the plan's content and recommendations.

Glavine says Nova Scotians with dementia, caregivers, service providers and geriatric health care professionals will serve on the committee.

He says with Nova Scotia having the country's oldest population per capita, there is a need to create a dementia strategy.

The plan is expected to be announced in the spring of 2015.
