Nenagh and Ballina-Killaloe September Virtual Dementia Café

Nenagh and Ballina-Killaloe September Virtual Dementia Café.

Join us online at our Virtual Café on Tuesday 14th September at 11am with your cup of tea when we have the wonderful Kevin Quaid as our guest speaker.

Kevin was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia when he was 53 and along with his wife Helena, they have become great advocates for people living with dementia and their families and carers. His is the Vice-Chair of Alzheimer Europe, is part of the Irish Dementia Networking Group, and he has also written about his experience of being diagnosed and living with Lewy Body Dementia in his book, “Lewy Body Dementia Survival and Me”.

Kevin is continuously working to raise awareness of Lewy Body Dementia; his book came about after he found very little information on this, and wanted to help and support other people diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. For this reason, he and Helena also set up the Kanturk Dementia Café.

Dementia cafés are free of charge, and aim to provide a safe and supportive place for people living with dementia, their families, health professionals, and anyone interested in supporting people living with dementia in their communities.

For the moment, the cafés will be held online. To join, please email ballinakillaloe.dementiacafe@gmail.com to get the link to Zoom. Hoping you can join us!

This event will be hosted online via Zoom by Silver Arch Family Resource Centre in Nenagh and Killaloe-Ballina Family Resource Centre, with the support of the Irish Dementia Café Network.
