Crystal Project – Mallow, Co Cork

The Crystal Project aims to make Mallow a dementia friendly town by increasing awareness about dementia and reducing the stigma surrounding it.  The Crystal project is made up of The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, HSE, family carers, UCC and the GPs in Mallow Primary Health Centre.
The project will deliver a number of activities through specific aims:
1. Supporting those diagnosed with dementia to stay active within their communities: 
A volunteer befriending service will facilitate people to stay active within their community. 
2. Supporting families throughout their caring giving journey: Through the provision of family carer training programmes the Friends of Dementia group will bring invaluable family carer experience to the project.  
3. Increasing awareness about dementia and reducing stigma within the community: Through public information evenings; a library project; a series of articles on dementia in the local newspaper; an educational programme through the local schools and information sessions for local businesses.

The singing group will be held on the ground floor of the Mallow Primary Healthcare Centre  from 3-4.30pm on Thursdays. Join us any week and enjoy this fun and sociable experience.
