Change needs to happen if Ireland is to be a country where people on the journey of dementia are valued and supported. Change in political will, change in political leadership and change in national policy. At The ASI we work towards creating this change through political campaigning and by raising awareness in the media. We do this by promoting the voice of people with dementia and their carers and by building a body of evidence through research, policy papers and collaborations.
