On Wednesday next, April 27, Galway Golf Club will host a Tea Day for Western Alzheimer’s. This is an exciting venture for the golf club as last year over €8,000 was raised on the morning. It is hoped that that much needed funds for this charity will be raised again. Western Alzheimer’s provide a complete service of care to families affected by Alzheimer’s disease in the Western Region.
Supporting hundreds of families with a home from home philosophy., the service includes in-home support – where care assistants spend time with the person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease in their own home to cook a favourite lunch, play cards, say prayers or simply lend a fresh ear to stories from a bygone day. They also supply day care in the St Francis Homes, Galway, Maryfield, Athenry and Marian House, Ballindine.
All funds raised from the Tea Day will help Western Alzheimer’s to provide the above essential services which will ensure that people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease are cared for in a safe and comfortable environment and will assist families to look after their loved ones at home for as long as possible.
A super-draw will take place during the Tea Day when Mayor Frank Fahy will be there to draw the tickets. Your support will be greatly valued by all who are working on behalf of those suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Tickets for the raffle are available from Colleran’s Butcher Shop, Main Guard Street. Galway Golf Club look forward to welcoming you on April 27 from 10.30am – 12.30pm.
