Killarney Memorial Dementia Support Group

Support group details

Group Description
This group is for anyone who is supporting a person with dementia. We meet monthly, and every second month, we have a guest speaker who can offer different ways of practical support or information relevant to dementia. On the alternate month, we have an informal coffee morning where people are welcome to chat in a "safe space" or have a bit of social respite over a cuppa. We are only a very recently formed group with a small number of attendees, most of whom have a loved one in our care or are cared for by our staff in the community.
Who can Join
Anyone who is touched by dementia - whether they are supporting a partner, family member or friend with dementia. We also welcome the people they are supporting.
Contact hours
Every second Tuesday of the month.
