"Integrated networks to deliver individualised supports for people with dementia and their family carers"
This paper introduces, explains and describes the concept of dementia consortia by bringing together the experience and learning of dementia consortia established in Ireland to date. The aim is to illustrate how these groups can be established and to identify useful approaches and strategies so that a collaborative group can be as successful as possible. Dementia poses a multi-faceted challenge and the case is made that an ‘all of community’ response represents the most effective and sustainable way forward.
