The Alzheimer Society of Ireland wants to make dementia a policy priority for Government and to ensure there is a commitment of resources to dementia care. Our policy work focuses on highlighting the major policy issues and challenges that dementia poses as well as providing evidence based solutions.

To be effective in our policy work we engage in a range of activities. These activities include, making policy submissions to Government, Government bodies and other agencies, keeping track of and influencing relevant legislation, commissioning external experts to write policy papers, representing dementia policy issues both nationally and internationally and carrying out policy research.
