This Friday, September the 23rd , there will be a unique roadshow on raising awareness about Dementia in King House.
The innovative Dementia Elevator Programme, led by Dublin city University’s Dr Kate Irving and supported by the HSE, will provide the public with an opportunity to learn about Dementia and discover more about local resources and initiatives to support people with Dementia and their carers.
The roadshow will include presentations, practical exhibits and interactive workshops, delivered by the Elevator team and special guests, and will be of particular interest to people with a diagnosis of Dementia, their family and carers, health and social care professionals, community groups, local businesses and patient representatives. The Showcase is free to all. DR Irving leads the project. She has been involved in clinical practice, teaching and research in the Dementia field for over 15 years.
Dementia Elevator is an education and empowerment programme developed by DCU and the HSE, with the support of Atlantic Philanthropies, to help individuals, communities and health systems engage appropriately with people with Dementia. the overall aim of the project is to allow people with Dementia to live a normal life for as long as possible and to prepare communities to deal with people with the condition.
