Launch of Dementia Hub Ireland
The Centre for Economic & Social Research on Dementia is delighted to announce the launch of the Dementia Hub Ireland website.
Dementia Hub Ireland documents the extraordinary journey of innovation that is helping to transform dementia care, policy and practice in Ireland.
This has been made possible with the investment of €33 million from The Atlantic Philanthropies (Atlantic). This in turn has leveraged an additional €51 million from government and other agencies.
Atlantic has funded 15 separate projects, ranging in magnitude, duration and scope. What is common to them all is the resolute focus on moving Ireland away from the old, biological model of care and residential solutions to a more progressive, biopsychosocial model that puts people and community first.
