We run support groups for families affected by dementia around Ireland. These group meetings are usually held once a month in the evening.

Carers are free to attend on a once off basis, as needs arise, or on a regular basis. The support groups provide an opportunity to meet others in a similar situation, to share stories and experiences, and access information and practical advice in a relaxed, understanding and supportive environment.

We have a support group specifically for families whose loved one with dementia is under 65. People are welcome from any part of Ireland to attend this group, which is held in Dublin.
