Alzheimer's Memory Ribbon Day


Please support us on Friday 24th of November for our
National Alzheimer’s Memory Ribbon Day.

Our memories are the gifts life gives... – and for the 55,000 people in Ireland today living with dementia, those memories are especially precious and uplifting.
We want to celebrate those memories and all the special people who made them this November.

Our volunteers will be selling our purple Memory Ribbons pins in towns across Ireland on November 24th.

The funds will go towards our provision of our services which provide essential support to people living with dementia and the loving families who support them.

 We hope to raise as much funds as possible on the day to ensure we can continue to offer support and service to those living with dementia in our communities.
How Can You Help?
Every Ribbon you sell will go directly to  help fund vital services.
We urgently need generous people like you to volunteer to sell our Memory Ribbons in towns across Ireland. By volunteering even just one hour of your time you will be contributing generously to us.  

Check out our collection points near you!  

You will be able to support your local Alzheimer Services by purchasing a purple memory ribbon pin or other merchandise for €3 each from collectors on the streets of cities, towns and villages across Ireland.

Please keep an eye out for our collectors around the country on the 24th November, and please give as generously as you can!

Sharing a Memory

Our memories are the gifts life gives us – and for the 55,000 people in Ireland today living with dementia, those memories are especially precious and uplifting.

By sharing a memory and donating €7 to The Alzheimer Society of Ireland Memory Ribbon campaign you will be giving a gift that will change lives. Memories are meant to be shared.
Please share with us the memory of the people you cherish the most. The stories and pictures that you never want to forget – and take the time to read through the memories others have left by visiting

 Every donation given will go towards funding vital services, like our home care service which provides trained dementia care workers for people in the comfort and security of their own homes.
