Several people living with dementia explain what they think is important to them as Ireland’s first National Dementia Strategy is published today.

The strategy includes an investment of €27.5million and a roll out of home services.

Some 48,000 people and 50,000 carers live with dementia in Ireland. Of that 48,000 – 4,000 are under the age of 65.

The Alzheimer Association of Ireland believes this figure of 48,000 will rise to 68,216 by 2021 and to 132,000 by 2041.

How many?
