Briefing Paper on Dementia Advisors

De Siún (2013) takes the reader through several countries, their national dementia strategies and the varying ways in which the dementia advisor role has taken shape in these countries, along with their key responsibilities and supporting structures. It then moves to ROI and describes the situation with respect to dementia advisors in 2013, where advisors were found to take a mixed approach, that access to services differs significantly across regions and that they are more often dealing with families and carers than the person with dementia. Finally, the briefing paper reviews the research evidence on dementia advisors.
