Dáithí Ó Sé invites you to celebrate Alzheimer’s Tea Day

Front Page

 Dáithí Ó Sé launching Alzheimer’s Tea Day 2021.

RTÉ star Dáithí Ó Sé is calling on Louth to show solidarity with people with dementia and their family carers and virtually have Tea in Every Town with their friends and loved ones to mark Alzheimer’s Tea Day which takes place across Ireland on Thursday, 6th May.

There are almost 600 people living with dementia in Louth and for every one of them three others are directly affected.

This year The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (ASI) is inviting the public to brew the most powerful cup of tea and get together virtually to celebrate, remember and show solidarity with people with dementia, their carers and the 500,000 people who are impacted by dementia in Ireland.

Although people can’t gather in groups for Tea Day, which is proudly sponsored by Fujitsu Ireland they can still connect and reach out to friends and loved ones across their communities, around Ireland and abroad – on the phone, on screen, Skype, Zoom and any other socially-distanced way people may choose.

This year, it’s more important than ever before that people put the kettle on, pick up the phone and reach out to a loved one or someone in your community to say hello and share a virtual cup of tea and to show people with dementia and carers who are at home, often confused, isolated and struggling without access to usual daily supports that we haven’t forgotten them.

The ASI needs to raise €3.5 million every year just to keep services running and while the public has been so generous over recent months; the reality is that more funds are needed to plug the gap in funding due to the impact of Covid-19 to support the 64,000 living with dementia in Ireland.
