Laois Alzheimer’s are offering a week’s respite care to people who have a dementia diagnosis in the Waterman’s Lodge Care Centre, Ballina-Killaloe, Co Tipperary. Their specialist overnight respite centre offers stimulation and activity to the person with dementia in a safe, friendly environment and respite from caring for the caregiver. You do not have to be availing of homecare services to apply. To access respite care please contact Ann (details below). Places are limited so get in touch with us.
