dc.descriptionThe first external evaluation of the Dementia Adviser Service (DAS) in Ireland provides evidence of overall high levels of satisfaction with the service. Clients (People living with dementia and their carers) and health and social care professionals reported satisfaction with the information, advice, peer support and signposting of services provided by the Dementia Adviser (DA). It is evident that the current DAS has grown organically since its inception in 2014, in response to client needs. However there are some differences in the operationalisation of the service in different areas depending on the level of integration and connection with relevant local health and social care services. Neither health and social care professionals nor clients were fully aware of the extent or scope of the DAS, therefore clarity of the role and scope of practice of the DA is needed. All stakeholders called for better integration of the DAS with existing services and greater public awareness and coverage of the service.en_US
