ALZHEIMER’S SOCIETY: Laois Alzheimer’s Society Resource Centre at 47 Main Street Portlaoise is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Laois Alzheimer’s are offering a week’s respite care to people who have a dementia diagnosis in 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. This centre provides overnight respite care seven days a week. During the day, residents have access to the Day Care Centre. You do not have to be availing of homecare services to apply. To access respite care please contact Ann Munnelly at the address below. Places are limited so get in touch with us.

Our next Social Club is Thursday 27th June 2019 at 1.30pm to 2.30pm in Day Care Centre on Timahoe Road, Portlaoise 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. If you are in the area please join us. All welcome.
