Liam & David

Liam and I met when our wives were both being treated for dementia in the same ward.

When you go through something like that, it can be a very difficult, isolating time.

The Age NI day centre is a warm and friendly place. There might be days you come in grumpy, but you always leave with a smile on your face.

David and I enjoy the craic and banter in the day centre. We have been coming here for a few years.

It feels like a family and Wendy (the Manager) and her team know us all inside out. Having somewhere local where people know us, care about us, and enjoy our company is important. It’s like a home from home and that’s priceless at any age.

Liam & David

Liam, pictured right, who has sadly now passed away, told us often how he enjoyed the craic and banter in the day centre with David and the other clients over the years. Liam is greatly missed.

'When my mother Rita was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, it was a very difficult time.'
