About our Support Groups

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

Going to my first support group meeting was like a light going on in my life...I had felt so alone, so powerless,...suddenly I knew there were people I could talk to and I began to feel I could plan. Anonymous, Wicklow

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.

We also have a support group for people with dementia themsleves which takes place in Dublin once a month. People are welcome from any part of Ireland to attend this group .

To find out where and when your local group meets just call the coordinator of the group nearest to you.
