DKIT launch MSc. in Ageing, Health and Environment

We welcome the announcement that the Dundalk Institute of Technology has launched an MSc. Degree in Ageing, Health and Environment.  Innovation and education are the cornerstones to ensuring we continue to enhance and provide a positive aging experience for those in our community. carers and nurses specialise in the provision of older person services in the North East region and nationwide, assisting the older person to remain living independently in the comfort of their own home.The up-skilling of personnel who care for the older person in the community is essential; as a result these courses are fundamental to ensuring our older community continue to receive the care and attention they deserve.

The programme philosophy stems from the beliefs that ageing is a positive life event and that older people benefit when communities and older people services are designed to be age friendly”.
