ASI Dementia Bus heads to Leitrim and Sligo

The Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s (ASI) Mobile Information Service is bringing experienced staff and volunteers to answer questions and provide information on dementia in various locations in Sligo and Leitrim over the coming days.

This service can empower people by providing information about the condition, about services and about supports that may be available and also crucially by providing a listening ear and a safe and private space to talk.

Dementia Adviser and team

The ASI’s Dementia Adviser for the area, Majella O Donnell, said it’s crucial that people with dementia and families have access to high quality information and advice in their community.

“If people are unsure about their situation, if they don’t know what to do next, if they are worried about supports or if they simply need to talk, this is a great opportunity,” stated O Donnell before adding, “it’s so important that we talk and learn about any illness, and that includes dementia, in an open, clear and supportive way.”

Meet Majella and her team on the Mobile Information Service at these locations:

  • Wednesday 22nd February, 10am – 4pm: Sligo Regional Hospital
  • Thursday 23rd February, 10am – 4pm: SuperValu Leitrim
