HSE Living Well with Demen­tia (LWwD) 
The LWwD programme in HSE CHO 6 (Dublin South) is an award-winning initiative which develops and delivers innovative services and supports to people living with dementia and their families in their communities. Our goal is to ensure that people with a dementia diagnosis are supported to remain living at home and active in their community for as long as possible.

The programme is hosted by Southside Partnership and our vision is of a community that respects, supports and empowers people with dementia, a community in which peo­ple with dementia are socially and cultur­ally valued, and where they can actively participate in society in a safe environment. Central to the success of the programme is respect for the dignity, welfare and well­being, will and preferences, beliefs and val­ues of each person living with dementia. Our guiding principle is to ‘See the Per­son, Not their Dementia’.
