Mayo Support Group Meetings:
Second Wednesday of the month:
Ballina – Ballina Family Resource Centre
Memory Lane Cafe Belmullet:
Belmullet – various locations
The Memory Lane Cafe is an initiative that was set up by Rita Scott, Bridget McMahon and Christine Cronin who work in Sonas Tí Aire Nursing Home Belmullet where they care for many residents living with Alzheimers/Dementia.
It is an illness they are very passionate about educating people on and work closely with Community Action on Dementia in Mayo who are working hard to provide services to the people of Erris.
The idea behind the cafe is to give the elderly in the community and their carers a setting where they can come together, enjoy a nice cup of tea and cake, share stories, reminisce and enjoy a range of activities.
They also aim to educate our guests on various health problems such as Alzheimers/Dementia, MS, Parkinsons, Arthritis, Heart Disease, Diabetes and so on.
The Dementia Café is based on an international model and opens for a few hours on the same day each month. Light refreshments and a mix of education and support are available.
The cafe will run once a month at various locations in Belmullet, admission is just 2euro with all proceeds going to Western Alzheimers.
