Dementia Adviser Service

Our Dementia Advisers work with people with dementia and their families and carers to provide a highly responsive and individualised information and signposting service. 

Your local Dementia Adviser will work with you to:

  • provide information and advice throughout your journey with dementia,
  • help connect you with dementia supports and services,
  • help connect you with local groups and services and,
  • help your community to be more dementia friendly.

In 2017, ASI carried out a client survey to understand peoples experience with the dementia adviser serivce and the impact it had for them and their family. This will in turn help us to deliver the best possible serivce and to advocate for more dementia advisers in Ireland. You can read the results of the survey here.

This service is free and confidential.
