« BackMEP backs calls to increase home care supports for families living with dementia

An Ireland South MEP is backing calls to increase home care supports for families living with dementia.

 

Deirdre Clune was speaking as the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland called on the Government to invest more in Budget 2017.

 

There are over 35,000 people living with dementia in Ireland, and some 4,000 have early onset dementia.

MEP Clune says keeping those living with dementia in the home is not only important to them and their families, but also saves the state considerable costs.
