Help us change dementia care in Northern Ireland
The Northern Ireland Assembly Executive has published a regional strategy for improving dementia services in Northern Ireland.
We need to build political momentum in Northern Ireland to ensure that the commitments in this strategy on improving support and services for people with dementia and their carers are prioritised and lead to real and positive change.
Regional dementia strategy
In November 2011, the Northern Ireland Executive published its regional strategy for improving services and support for people with dementia in Northern Ireland.
Alzheimer's Society has welcome the publication of this strategy, which has been long awaited following a consultation in 2010. However we are disappointed that no new money was attached for implementation of the regional strategy.
