To meet this need and having completed the Development of its existing Day Centre for Older People, Ard Chúram have built a new 5k.sq.ft Purpose Build Dementia Day Care Centre. Chairman of Ard Chúram’s Building sub Committee said, “We in Ard Chúram are very excited about this new project. The Centre was built to highest spec, was fitted out with best available advice and one of its many features is an indoor garden.”

The building with full fit has cost in excess of €1m so all donations gratefully received.
