The National Memory Programme 2012 - 2020

The European Parliament adopted a written declaration in 2008 which highlighted the increasing importance of memory diseases from the perspective of public health and the national economy and the need for national memory strategies as one means of preparedness. Finland's national programme was produced by a committee set up by the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.

The target of the National Memory Programme of Finland is to make Finland "a memory friendly country" based on four key elements:

  • Promoting brain health
  • Correct attitudes to care and rehabilitation for brain health and memory diseases
  • Ensuring a good quality of life for both people with memory diseases and their carers by means of timely support, care and nursing, rehabilitation and services
  • Promoting comprehensive research and knowledge of memory diseases

A "memory-friendly" Finland is a society that takes the promotion of brain health and the early detection of cognitive symptoms seriously. Anyone diagnosed with a cognitive problems or memory diseases has access to appropriate treatment, care and rehabilitation so that they can live their lives with dignity, and they will not be left without support.

The Alzheimer Society of Finland coordinates the third sector activities related to The National Memory Programme. Work is done in cooperation with local associations and The Central Association of Carers in Finland and funded by RAY.
