Come to our first Alzheimer Cafe Cabra on our Dominican Campus on November 6th 2014
We will be hosting a new Alzheimer Cafe, the Alzheimer Cafe Cabra at the Dominican Campus at 183 Navan Road which will run on the first Thursday of every month. The Alzheimer Café is a concept that was originally developed in the Netherlands as a monthly support group in a café like setting for people with dementia and their carers.
Our first cafe will be held in Santa Sabina House (3rd building on RHS) from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday 6th November. All are welcome.
The support group will combine information and support with an opportunity to socialise in an informal café environment. It enables families who are experiencing dementia to receive valuable information and stay connected. The Alzheimer Cafés are also attended by healthcare professionals and are combined with a presentation on an issue relating to dementia.
The model encourages other interested groups to set up an Alzheimer Café in their area, according to the criteria of the original model. There are an estimated 48,000 people with dementia in Ireland.
The Alzheimer Cafe is free of charge and will rely on the support of volunteers who will run the cafe every month.
