Local Minister for Housing and Urban Renewal has welcomed the
Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s pre-Budget submission, the launch of
which he attended last week in Dublin at the request of Meath members
of the Society including Anne Marie Russell.
“I was highly impressed by the cases made by both medical
professionals, researchers, and those with practical experience of
caring for a loved one, as to the benefits of a home care approach for
as long as is possible” he said.
“The emphasis in the document towards greater home based care for
loved ones is something I think every Irish person values the most,
and aspires towards. There is a budgetary process to be gone through,
but I will be offering my support to the proposals from the Alzheimer
Society. I intend to work with my Meath and MInisterial colleague
Helen McEntee, who is responsible for Mental Health and Older People,
on this issue, over the summer months” Minister English stated.
