The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is a national voluntary organization and has an extensive national network of branches and services throughout the country, providing support to those living with dementia and their carers. The Society is now the major dementia specific service provider in Ireland and in recent years has grown in scope and size; we now have approximately 700 staff, over 300 volunteers and 3,000 members.
The Societys support services currently comprise 26 branches, a national network of Day Care Centres, Home Care/Support Services, Carer Support Groups and one residential Respite Centre. The Society also operates the Alzheimer National Helpline offering information and emotional support. A number of core functions are operated from the Alzheimer Society’s National Office including information, fundraising, public relations, human resources, training, finance and research.
Our mission is: ‘To work with those affected by Alzheimer’s disease/dementia to maximise qualify of life’
