Alzheimer's Society in Ireland's Head of Fundraising Mairéad Dillon said:
"Dementia has a devastating impact on families. Services like home care, day care centers and support groups help thousands of people to cope. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is underfinanced and demand for services is constantly increasing, so we really need to support Christmas if we are to maintain important services for Those who desperately need them.
"By sharing a memory and donating 3 € to the Alzheimer Memory Ribbon campaign, members of the public will give a gift that will change life. Each donated 3 euro will go directly to providing vital services to those living with dementia and the loving families that support them.
"Each band that the public buys will go directly to help fund vital services, such as our 51 healthcare centers around the country offering specialist care for dementia or our healthcare services that provide educated dementia careers for people in comfort and safety in their own him. "
