The number of people with dementia in Japan is projected to increase from 4.62 million in 2012 to approximately 7 million in 2025, meaning that one in five of those over 65 years old will have dementia. As populations around the world rapidly age, dementia is following as an increasingly serious global issue. In January 2015, the Japanese Government announced its revised national dementia strategy, the New Orange Plan. It is critical that dementia policy integrates the perspectives of persons with dementia and their families if Japan and other societies around the world are truly to support persons with dementia to live fulfilling and enriching lives even after being diagnosed with dementia.
This Breakfast Meeting will feature Mr. Tomofumi Yamamoto who works as a journalist and has published his own experiences of early treatment for dementia. Mr. Yamamoto’s message has been widely shared at events throughout Japan, including the G7 Dementia Legacy Event in November 2014. At this Breakfast Meeting, Mr. Yamamoto, will share his own experiences and discuss his expectations for Japan’s national dementia strategy.
