Living Well with Dementia was set up in 2012 for people with dementia and their families living in the South Tipperary area. The service which is funded by the Health Service Executive (HSE) and run in cooperation with Family Carers Ireland provides a broad range of supports and services which are designed to help people live as well and as independently as they can at home in their own community.
