Community Outreach Dementia Project Leitrim (CODPL)

Lead organisation: Leitrim Day Hospital Consortium

Grant amount: €100,000

Description: This project aims to set out an integrated pathway for people with dementia and their carers from acute / community services, day hospital and home. The creation of an integrated care pathway will help to facilitate early discharge from hospital, extend life at home for people with advanced dementia and improve quality of life and outcomes for the person with dementia and their families at home with a comprehensive suite of individualised enhanced supports. This should result in the avoidance of inappropriate hospital admission and the postponement of long-term care for people with dementia. The project will also support the advancement of an outreach model for dementia care at the day hospital.
