Developing and Implementing Dementia Policy in Ireland
Resource type: Research Report
Centre for Economic and Social Research on Dementia, NUI Galway |
This report is a follow up to Creating Excellence in Dementia Care (2012), which informed Ireland’s National Dementia Strategy. It reflects on progress since 2012 on various aspects of care for people with dementia in Ireland and internationally with a view to informing future developments in the country’s national dementia policy. For all the considerable progress associated with the National Dementia Strategy and the sterling implementation work currently being carried out by the National Dementia Oﬃce, signiﬁcant gaps still remain in relation to dementia in Ireland. The report concludes that there is a continuing need “to ensure we are focused on fostering change, creating a system that is receptive to meeting the real needs of people with dementia and their families.”
