LAOIS ALZHEIMER’S SOCIETY: Laois Alzheimer’s Society Resource Centre at 47 Main Street Portlaoise R32 VRX8 is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. We want to thank Lorraine Weldon Area Manager of Connected Health +and her group of carers who donated the proceeds of their coffee day and raffle to Laois Alzheimer’s Branch and want to thank all who bought tickets and supported them and us. We are very thankful for their donation. They raised €219.57 on day and €163 online for Laois Alzheimers. We don’t have a support group in December but will be back in January as usual. 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.
