Dementia Adviser

Our Dementia Advisers work with people with dementia, their families and carers to provide a highly responsive and individualised information and signposting service. No Dementia Advisers are doing any Home Visits at the moment - the support is only over the phone for the time being due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Our Dementia Advisers work with people with dementia, their families and carers to provide a highly responsive and individualised information and signposting service.

Our local Dementia Adviser will work with you to:

  • Provide information and advice throughout your journey with dementia,
  • Help connect you with dementia supports and services,
  • Help connect you with local groups and services and,
  • Help your community to be more dementia friendly.

In 2017, ASI carried out a client survey to understand peoples experience with the dementia adviser service and the impact it had for them and their family. This will in turn help us to deliver the best possible service and to advocate for more dementia advisers in Ireland. You can read the results of the survey here

This service is free and confidential. Dementia Advisers are not doing any home visits at the moment – the support is only over the phone for the time being due to Covid-19 restrictions.
