Description:
In recent years dementia has beconie more common as increasing numbers of people are reaching advanced old age. The relative absence of services specifically designed to cope with the condition poses problems for sufferers, carers and service providers in Ireland. On 4th June 1993, the National Council for the Elderly hosted a Seminar on Dementia Services: Information and Development, at the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire. It was attended by over 130 policy makers and providers of services for the elderly with an interest in the problems and challenges presented by dementia. The purpose of the Seminar was to consider a proposal to establish a Dementia Services Information and Development Centre in Ireland which would encourage the development of high quality services for people with dementia and their carers. The response to this proposal was overwhelmingly positive and it was agreed that the National Council for the Elderly should establish a Committee to progress the matter further.
