LAOIS ALZHEIMER’S SOCIETY: Laois Alzheimer’s Society Resource Centre at 47 Main Street Portlaoise is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm. Laois Alzheimer Society is a Homecare Service for Laois people who are living with Dementia. We look after the day to day needs of people and assist in making life more enjoyable for their families. We have our Social Club on the 13th and 27th of September from 2.30pm until 4.30pm for people with Dementia and their carers. This is a very relaxed informal event where activities, fun and chat can be shared over a cup of tea. We have started going On Tour with our Social Club so check local press notes for updates.
Our Family Support Group is on Wednesday the 19th of September between 7.30pm and 9pm in the Resource Centre, 47 Main Street, Portlaoise. The support groups are for family carers to get together, share their stories, get advice and give support to others in a similar situation. On the weekend of 22nd and 23rd of September we will have a Church Gate Collection at St Fintan’s Church Mountrath, at 7pm mass on the Saturday, and 11.30am on the Sunday. Your support would be greatly appreciated. We will also have the Alzheimer’s Mobile unit in the Church Yard on the Sunday morning with information on dementia and the services we provide.
