It argues that current dementia healthcare services are over-specialised, and that a rebalancing is required with a more prominent role for primary and community care which could increase capacity, limit the increased costs associated with scaling up coverage of care, and, coupled with the introduction of care pathways and case management, improve the coordination and integration of care.
