Living Well with Dementia Programme (LWwD)

“Every 3 Seconds someone in the world develops Dementia.”

The more we understand  - the more we can support.

The Living Well with Dementia programme is now expanding all its activities inclusive of people living dementia to cover the complete Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council region.  Throughout the month of October, the Living Well with Dementia programme has a number of events organised to promote awareness about dementia and activities available.

The estimated number of people living with dementia in this region is 4,600 (Report Prevalence of Dementia In Ireland, NUIG, 2018).

The programme aims to:

  • Raise Awareness / Understanding / Reduce stigma of Dementia
  • To provide the person living with dementia, their family & carers a  choice to live in their community where they are living as  a valued, equal citizen
  • To develop a community that respects, supports and empowers people living with dementia, their families and carers
  • To develop communities  where a  person living with dementia is socially and culturally valued as they travel their dementia journey, served by a comprehensive set of easily accessible, visible, personalised and interlinked supports
  • That the will and preferences, beliefs and values of each person living with dementia are listened to, heard and respected at all times
  • To see the person, NOT their dementia and the programme embraces a strengths-based approach.

Please see links outlining the range of activities and we invite you to attend, to promote and circulate the details to as many people as possible.
