With members of the public order unit and Deputy Seán Fleming. Caring for Dementia
I have been a local Councillor for 16 years and the needs of vulnerable people in our society continue to be at the core of all my political work There are 48,000 people living with dementia in Ireland. By the end of the next Government term, in 2021, that number will have increased by 40%. I want to see us as a society, acknowledge carers of loved ones with Dementia, particularly people who care for a loved one at home. We need to look on Dementia as a normal part of our daily lives, and not a condition to feel embarrassed about. If we did this, we could, I believe, improve the quality of life of carers as well as for their loved ones. I fully support the Alzheimer Society of Ireland Dementia Friendly Communities Project already thriving in parts of the country (Cavan, West Donegal, Galway City, Killaloe, Mallow, Callan) and would love to see it developed in every community in Ireland. This would be a great start to a national public awareness programme, and would I feel, lead to a lessening of the sadness and isolation experienced by carers of loved ones with Dementia.
