Mary Sutton, Atlantic Philanthropies, Minister Kathleen Lynch and Helen Rochford Brennan, Chair of the Irish Dementia Working Group, at the launch of the National Dementia Strategy on 17 December 2014. 

Ireland's first National Dementia Strategy was launched in December 2014. The Strategy aims to meet the needs of the 55,000 people currently living with dementia In Ireland and the expected increase of people who will live with dementia in the future.

Despite the growing challenge that dementia presents, in the past it has been a neglected, under-funded and under-prioritised issue in the Irish health and social care system. We know that lives can be transformed if dementia is made a national priority and the National Dementia Strategy is the first step in this transformation.

A copy of the full National Dementia Strategy is available here.
