Cavan Branch - The Alzheimer Society of Ireland
Over the past 11 years, the Cavan Branch of the Alzheimer Society of Ireland has been supporting those with dementia and their families across Cavan. The branch has adopted to COVID-19 with a new Day Care at home Service where six full time Carers give over 200 hours per week to 45 local families - providing stimulation for people with dementia and allowing their Carers a few precious hours away per week. The HSE fund a large part of this Service but of course there is a considerable shortfall as more and more people are applying for the Service. Please join us this St.Stephen’s Day to support the local Cavan Alzheimer Branch.
Cuan is sincerely grateful to the Cavan Christmas Dash for choosing it as one of its charities and raising the amazing sum of €8,317. It was a great community event which generated a wealth of goodwill to all.
The Christmas 2015 donation helped fund the Cavan branch of CFI branch's contribution of €450,000 to the €1.1 million project that the branch, in partnership with the HSE, is presently pursuing at Cavan General Hospital. Two distinct areas within the paediatric department of the hospital are being converted into single isolation en suite bedrooms for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
