We are calling on the Government to invest €12 million towards community supports for people with dementia as outlined in our Pre-Budget Submission 2019 ‘Dementia Support Across Ireland – Building Communities of Care’.

According to mapping project carried out by the ASI and the HSE’s National Dementia Office (NDO), access to community dementia-specific services across Ireland varies depending on where you live. No county in Ireland has an acceptable level of dementia support and the time has come for the Government to provide funding to address the matter urgently.
 
The mid-term review of the National Dementia Strategy (NDS), which was launched in May 2018, acknowledges that people with dementia and their families are still dealing with inadequate services and supports and states that additional funding is required.
