New Dementia carers support group Sligo

New carers support group

The HSE are establishing a new Dementia Carers Support Group for people who are supporting family or friends who have a diagnosis of dementia.

The group will meet every third Tuesday of the month starting on 17th September from 7:30 - 9:00pm at St John's Community Hospital, Sligo Town

Guest speakers will provide information on an overview of dementia, local services available, delirium, communication and future planning.

A warm welcome will be given in an informal relaxed atmosphere with positive support and understanding.

We will have a cuppa, some relaxation,  discussions and guest speakers. We will talk, listen and learn from each other.

To find out more please contact Tel: 0719142606 ext 272.
