WHO WE ARE

Wicklow Dementia Support is a charity operated and staffed by volunteers to help people with dementia retain as much independence as possible and for them to remain in their own homes for as long as possible.

To help achieve these ends, a variety of services has been established by Wicklow Dementia Support (WDS), which comprise of:

AlzPals 

Befriending service for those in the early stages of dementia, who require friendship and stimulation. It also supports the carer by providing a break for them.

AlzClubs

Social groups where people with dementia and their families meet on a weekly basis

Carers Support Group

Monthly meetings for carers of people with dementia to meet and support each other

AlzInfo 

Information service to those using dementia services or having to use dementia services for the first time

It is envisaged that these services will continue to expand and develop over time, but will remain locally run and driven to address the needs of those with dementia in Co Wicklow.

The organisation is managed by a voluntary Board, which appoints facilitators, as appropriate, to the various services.

Volunteers are recruited on an ongoing basis and trained to carry out the work of the organisation.

The overall driving force is to retain as much independence as possible for those with dementia and for them to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. To help achieve these ends, a variety of services has been established by Wicklow Dementia Support (WDS)... [ read more ]

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

As long as dementia continues to touch more and more families, and funding for dementia services remains at a minimum, we will have to raise funds independently to continue to support our community and people with dementia.
