Genio Dementia Programme - Evaluation of Year 2

This paper is a follow-up to the evaluation of the Genio community based dementia programme which was undertaken in 2014 by Professor O’Shea on the first year of operation of that programme. By supporting integrated and holistic service models within a person-centred framework for people with dementia (PWD) in four demonstration sites, Genio aims to enable PWD to remain living in their homes and local communities for as long as possible and practicable. Commissioned by Genio, with support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, this evaluation was undertaken by Prof. Eamon O'Shea and Christine Monaghan from the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology, NUI Galway and published in 2015.
