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.
