De Valera Public Library Ennis – A Dementia Friendly Location

September is World Alzheimer's Month and Home Instead Senior Care has launched a public education programme called "Dementia Friendly Businesses". The programme offers free training to businesses with the aim of educating business owners and their staff so that they will have the tools to welcome family caregivers & understand the challenges for those living with Dementia who may otherwise be reluctant to leave home or take their loved ones into public places. The staff members of the De Valera Public Library in Ennis were delighted to be among the first to receive this training and are proud to now call the library a Dementia Friendly Business. Sincere thanks to Aodhnaid Lennon of Home Instead Senior Care Ennis for providing the training.
