Saint Joseph’s Centre is committed to the compassionate care of people with dementia and their families, providing a home from home for people living with dementia and becoming the first ‘dementia village’ in Ireland.

One in four people in Ireland are affected by dementia. This number is increasing year on year and as our aging population increases, so too does the incidence of dementia. 

Dementia is indiscriminate in its onset, it affects people from all walks of life and from every neighbourhood. The effects on people and families can often be overwhelming. Each person is a parent, a husband or wife, an aunt or uncle, a sister or brother, many are grandparents. They are former nurses, doctors, chefs, judges, accountants and joiners to name but a few. We strive to make sure these identities are cherished, respected and remembered.

Our Vision is to lead the way in dementia care in Ireland and reaching out to the community to inform and support people with dementia and their families, carers and friends is one of our main priorities.
