The programme for the Elderly has been running in Ionad na Dromoda since 2000. A varied programme is held every Thursday and Meals on Wheels are available four days a week on Monday to Thursday inclusive. Mass is said once a month.
The Day Care Centre's aims are to provide a service for those in our care, whereby they will get social stimulation, maintain and try to improve their levels of independence and skills they already have. Throughout the day we will provide different activities to keep them stimulated, such as arts & crafts, games, baking, exercise among others, and outdoor activities where possible.
If you are interested in using any of these services or have any questions please contact our Centre Manager June Collins on 066-9478669
June Collins is the part Time Manager of Ionad Lae na Dromoda. She is helped by participants of the Rural Social Scheme and by a participant on the Clár Séirbhísí Pobail.
