Are you, a friend or a family member affected by dementia?
Do you know someone that is?
Understanding Dementia – a talk by Medical Consultant Michael Riordan.
Free for all to attend, this event is brought to you by the local Charity Friends of Wexford General Hospital in conjunction with the consultants, management and staff of Wexford General Hospital.
This talk is being held on Monday November 3rd at 7.00pm in the Hospital’s Staff Canteen.
Dementia affects over 42,000 people in Ireland, and approximately 1,300 people in Wexford and South Wicklow. But it impacts many more people than those diagnosed. It can have a devastating effect on immediate and extended family, creates challenges for health care workers, and even retailers and service-providers need to understand how to manage, with dignity, customers suffering from dementia.
If you have any interest, please come along and bring a friend.

We aim to run a talk in November, December, January and February, and will review it thereafter, subject to demand.
