Mobile Information Service
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s Mobile Information Service travels through towns, villages and cities to provide information and support to people with dementia and their families as well as those concerned about their cognitive health.
The Peggy Mangan Foundation raised funds to enable ASI to purchase and convert this bus. We are very grateful for their support for this service and the great efforts involved in raising the funds needed.
Once on location, be it in a shopping centre car park or participating in a larger organised event in your area, the service can support Branches and local services to:
- raise awareness about local ASI services and about dementia,
- distribute leaflets to people passing-by,
- invite people on-board to view information and resources; and
- facilitate private one-to-one conversation on-board.
