Dungarvan – Ireland’s First Dementia Friendly Town

In a joint initiative between Home Instead Senior Care and Dungarvan Chamber of Commerce numerous local businesses completed a free training workshop, devised and facilitated by Home Instead Senior Care, which stressed the importance to service providers and retailers of having a better understanding of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Over fifty key frontline staff in these businesses underwent the training, which will greatly assist them in their future dealings with dementia sufferers, their carers and families.

The participating Dungarvan businesses that received their certificates of completion are AIB, Bank of Ireland, SGC Cinema, The Park Hotel, Dungarvan Chamber of Commerce, Dungarvan Tourism, Jitterbeans, Crew’s Restaurant, Blasta Wholefoods, Garvey’s SuperValu, Hallahan’s Pharmacy and Murray’s Pharmacy
