Thanks to everyone who came along to the Alzheimer Cafe Leixlip on July 13th. It was great to welcome back our regulars and to see some new faces.

Our speaker on the night was Mary Bolger, the Alzheimer Society of Ireland Services Manager for Kildare.

Mary outlined the services that are available in the local area (North and South Kildare). Mary also explained how services such as the day care centre in Maynooth can be accessed by people living in the Lucan area as well. She mentioned that some places were available in the Maynooth and in the Monasterevin day care centres. Please contact Mary directly if you would like to talk to her more about these.

Mary also talked about the new premises that the Alzheimer Society have taken over from the HSE – the old health centre in Clane. Mary hopes to get some social and support groups up and running in these premises in 6-8 weeks. We will let you know more about these in future Cafes.

Finally, for those of you living in Co Dublin, the Alzheimer Society Dementia Advisor for your area is Jean Scanlan and you can contact her by phone: 086 045 4703 or by email: jscanlan@alzheimer.ie
