An Economic Perspective of Dementia Care in Ireland: Maximising Benefits and Maintaining Cost Efficiency

Trepel (2010) examines the international evidence on dementia in relation to prevention, care and cure and considers how the evidence can be used to inform decisions about spending on dementia that will maximise benefits to society and at the same time maximise optimal cost efficiency, and in particular the implications for ROI. He concludes that investing in services and interventions to support carers is essential to achieving cost-effectiveness in dementia care.
