Memory Matters - Community Component

Lead organisation: Carlow/Kilkenny Service Providers Forum

Grant amount: €100,000

Description: The aim of this project is to design and provide supports that are flexible and responsive to the person with dementia and their carer, particularly for those who present with more complex needs related to the advanced stage of their dementia which will enable them to remain in their own home. The project’s focus will be on developing innovative home and community based support, alternative respite models and on maintaining social connectivity by harnessing internet-based social media as a resource and using assistive technology to avoid inappropriate hospital admission.
