Following the positive feedback from the launch of our dementia awareness video, Elevator has developed a resource pack to assist in face to face /group delivery of the video. Suitable for all groups including health care staff, allied professionals, community groups, schools and colleges. Click the image below to view the pdf.
Dementia Elevator have published an online video emphasising how with the right supports, a person with dementia can continue to live well following a diagnosis.

The Dementia Elevator team wish to reward an initiative or project that contributes in a meaningful and significant way to the everyday lives of people living with dementia.
For this reason, we have created the Elevator Award for Innovation in Dementia! The Elevator Award for Innovation in Dementia will be awarded to a project that plays a role in improving the quality of life of people with dementia, their caregivers, loved ones, and/or health professionals working in dementia care.
Applicants across all settings including (but not limited to) home, community, and healthcare are invited to apply. The successful applicant will receive €1,000 in prize money to help develop a dementia related project or expand an existing project in a novel way.
The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 24th October 2014. The winner will be awarded their prize at a ceremony in Dublin City University in early December 2014.
The primary aim of this award is to have a meaningful impact on the lives of people with dementia. We are seeking exciting ideas across all settings including homes, communities and health care settings. We welcome proposals at both local and national level. An application form will be available soon. An independent team of experts will evaluate all proposals and will decide on a shortlist of projects according to the evaluation criteria. Elevator will offer a €1000 award to the successful idea to assist the translation of the idea. More information will be available soon.
