Services

We run many different types of services. We provide assessment and treatment in different ways depending on what the problem is and how severe or complicated it is. It’s normal for people to move from one service area to another depending on what difficulties they need to address at the time.

Therapies

All our clients are individually assessed and a range of interventions are offered based on their needs. An emphasis is placed on connecting the individuals with services available in their community. We engage in psycho education, anxiety management, concordance therapy, information about medication, and we have groups facilitated by an artist

Services to Support Carers and Families

We liaise closely with the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland, Carer’s Groups. Members of our Multi Disciplinary Team also work closely with families in the community.
