Thanks to everyone who came along to the Alzheimer Cafe Leixlip on September 14th. It was great to see more new faces, and our Cafe regulars. We hope you all enjoyed the evening.

Our speaker on the night was Frank O’Rourke, Fianna Fail TD for Kildare North.

Frank talked to us about the supports and services that are available for people living with dementia and their families, including home care and carer’s benefits. He also reminded us of the importance of getting in contact with your Public Health Nurse (the link person to the HSE).

The handout that Frank provided on the night is available by clicking here.
This has lots of contact information and suggestions of where to find more information. Frank is also happy to help and support where he can – just contact him at one of his regular clinics.
