Caring for people with dementia

The Dementia Elevator Programme aims to help individuals, communities and health systems engage appropriately with people with dementia.The programme was developed by Dublin City University and the HSE (with the support of Atlantic Philanthropies).

Elevator takes a person-centred approach to dementia care. It aims to improve quality of life and help people with dementia stay at home, by providing the right supports and skills within local communities.

It offers a free online course on “Coping Skills for Families and Carers”. This course aims to show you skills that can help you cope with any challenges you might face day-to-day caring for a person with dementia.
