Alzheimers Disease and dementia is a major challenge facing societies across the world today. Currently there is no cure for dementia and people can live a very long time after diagnosis.
Western Alzheimers provides a range of specialist care services and we rely heavily on public support in order to help us meet the needs of those in our community caring for someone with a dementia related illness.

We’ll send you a Tea Day Pack, help with publicity and give you hints and tips to make it a really successful event.
Sports & Social Events
From quiz nights and céilís to fun runs and marathons, community get-togethers and setting personal goals can be a great way to support Western Alzheimers. If you’d like some advice about organising an event or would like to do a walk, trek or even a marathon on our behalf then just let us know and we’ll help in any way we can.
Our ethos of “sharing the care” is all about people helping each other so if you’d like to lend a hand to our fundraising team we are always delighted to hear from new volunteers.
Each year we organise one-off events like Flag Days, Church Gate Collections and other events where we need some extra people power.
If you’d like to help us out in your own locality then please contact any of our offices in Galway (091 565193), Mayo (094 9364900) or Roscommon (090 6627816), for information on events taking place near you.
