Boithrin na Smaointe

Cavan Dementia Community Network will work with the local County Council, HSE, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and the local art college to construct a meaningful Reminiscence Walking Trail in the North East side of Cavan town. 

There is a one kilometre walking circuit around the park and outdoor adult exercise machines purposely made for older people.  The walk itself will offer dementia-friendly reminiscence installations for discovery such as the following:
Horse plough
Old tractor
Milk cans
Post box 
Telephone kiosk
These installations create all sorts of possibilities for people to connect and engage with the park. These additional installations provide focus and familiarity to offer something novel and enjoyable.  Although specifically targeted for the older generation and people with dementia, the installations will be of interest to all other age groups.
