The HSE Living Well with Demen­tia (LWwD) programme is an award-winning initiative which develops and delivers innovative services and supports to people living with dementia and their families in their communities.

The programme is hosted by Southside Partnership and our vision is of a community that respects, supports and empowers people with dementia, a community in which peo­ple with dementia are socially and cultur­ally valued, and where they can actively participate in society in a safe environment. Central to the success of the programme is respect for the dignity, welfare and well­being, will and preferences, beliefs and val­ues of each person living with dementia.

LWwD listens to the person with demen­tia, their primary carers and families, in order to identify, develop and deliver effec­tive supports. We work collaboratively with them and other key stakeholders to ensure that people with a dementia diagnosis are supported to remain living at home and active in their community for as long as possible.

Our guiding principle is to ‘See the Per­son, Not their Dementia’.
