The HSE & Genio Dementia Programme has supported nine community-based projects between 2012 - 2017 across broad geographical areas in Ireland. These projects are developing a range of services and supports that are determined by the needs and preferences of people with dementia across the dementia spectrum from early-onset to later, more complex stages. Personalised supports are enabling people with dementia to remain living at home for as long as possible, connected and engaged with their family, neighbours and community. The projects also undertook a wide range of education and training activities with the general public, volunteers, community organisations and health and social care professionals.

Four projects in Kinsale, South Tipperary, South Dublin and Mayo developed an integrated range of services and supports over three years. In addition to personalised supports delivered at home and in the community, these projects developed innovative models of respite and provided access to assistive technology. The projects also undertook a wide range of education and training activities with the general public, volunteers, community organisations and health and social care professionals. A fifth Cognitive Health Project developed and shared online films which promote positive cognitive health behaviours.  

Five projects in Louth, Carlow-Kilkenny, Mallow, Roscommon and Leitrim are currently working to design and provide supports for individuals who present with more complex needs, which will enable them to remain in their own home or similar setting through the provision of flexible, responsive supports to the person and their family.
