The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (The ASI ) welcomes family carers of loved ones with dementia to attend its upcoming Face-to-Face Family Carer Training Course in the Sligo Park Hotel.
Insights into Dementia provides positive and practical training, aiming to develop family carers’ knowledge of Alzheimer’s and other dementias and their caring skills to enable them to respond more confidently to their family members’ needs.
Held in the Sligo Park Hotel Pearse Rd, Cornageeha, County Sligo, The ASI’s Family Carer Training course will take place every Tuesday from January 31 until March 7 2023, inclusive, from 7pm to 9.30 pm.
This is the first time in three years Face-to-Face Family Carer Training will be held in Sligo. Due to the Covid pandemic, the in-person training was suspended and subsequently moved online.

“Carers often must navigate the consequences of a dementia diagnosis in their families with little or no practical information to support them. This training aims to help carers understand the condition and increase their confidence in the ability to care. We are pleased to see our Face-to-Face Family Carer training resume in Sligo and welcome family carers of people living with dementia to sign up for the course,” ASI Family Carer Training Coordinator Christine Carr, said.
