KBC and Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland host dementia seminar in Kilkenny


KBC Bank Kilkenny is partnering with The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland to host a special information morning about dementia tomorrow.

The event is open to people with dementia or their families or friends who would like to learn more about the condition.

The information session will take place at 8:30am at the KBC Hub on the Parade in Kilkenny city.

Ruth Maher, Day Care Centre Manager at The Alzheimer Society of Ireland Kilkenny, will give an overview of dementia and how people are affected by the condition.

The talk will also highlight services and support available from The Alzheimer Society of Ireland Kilkenny for carers and people living with dementia.

Ms Maher told “It’s essential for families to get support. It can be a difficult road, by gaining timely support it can be a lot easier.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues affecting them at the Q&A session following the talk.

The Alzheimer Society of Ireland Communications Manager Cormac Cahill told “The first step would be to visit your GP. Tell your doctor why you are worried and they will talk to you about your concerns. The GP will look into possible reasons for the changes that the person is experiencing.

“You can also call the Alzheimer National Helpline and speak in confidence to someone who understands. You can freephone on 1800 341 341 or email The Helpline is open 6 days a week – Monday to Friday 10-5pm and Saturday 10-4pm.”
