Event Description

EDIC Gaoth Dobhair was very pleased to display the “Letters to Remember” exhibit by The Alzheimer Society of Ireland during the month of November 2015. It gave us the opportunity to highlight this issue locally and create awareness of this disease.

In September 2015, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland marked “World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month” with a poignant exhibit of “Letters to Remember”, written by people affected by Dementia, which went on display in various locations around Ireland.

The letters were penned by people living with dementia, including advocates with The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland (ASI), the Irish Dementia Working Group (IDWG), as well as carers of people with dementia both living and passed on.
