Borrisoleigh Security Text Alert Signage
First Anniversary Rathmoy
If you put up new frames for a sign you must have planning permission and public liability insurance (both recurring costs).
Our residents have avoided both these costs by using existing frames that were "in situ" for years previously and using private piers and pillars for signage.
The photographs are important examples to the rest of the community on how to replicate what has been achieved in Rathmoy without incurring great expense and avoiding prolonged bureaucratic planning procedures.
The Borrisoleigh Mother and Toddler Group meet every Wednesday morning from 9:30 – 11:00am in the Community Centre. All Welcome!
Starts Wednesday 6 November, 2013

Borrisoleigh Annual 2013
We aim to launch the annual on the Fair of Borris weekend. To enable us to do this we will need all articles and photos by Friday the 25th October 2013. Can all articles be sent in word if possible with photos as separate attachments to this email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again your assistance in the production of the 2013 annual will be appreciated.
Last month we ran our first workshops in Alzheimer’s CARE: Family and Community Education in Clonmel, Nenagh and Thurles. We had over 85 attend and we hope to continue with our planned workshops towards the end of the year.
The workshops aimed to educate families and communities who are experiencing the many challenges and anxieties arising from caring for a person with a dementia. The Workshops covered; Understanding Behavioural Changes; Encourage Engagement and Caring for yourself while caring for a loved one. We approached these challenges by answering: How to improve communication with a person with dementia and how to provide comfort and reassurance.
The evening was both emotional and challenging for all who attended with many troubling question being asked:
My brother refuses to accept mum’s condition and is angry at her all the time and now we are fighting; how can I get him to understand?
My dad refuses to get into the shower/refuses to eat/wants to go for long walks late at night/accuses us of robbing him/doesn’t recognise mum etc. etc. What can we do?
Dad won’t take a break from his caring role with mum and is exhausted and beginning to display health issues. How can we get him to take a break/engage in respite/ allow help into the home?
There are over 1,500 people in Co. Tipperary living with dementia, hence hundreds of families in our community that interact with you have similar challenges in their lives; many of whom are at breaking point and simply don’t know where to turn for help, feel guilty about leaning on others or becoming a burden.
Where families are struggling please advise them of the support available to them on their journey. Please direct families to call Home Instead on 0504 91100 to book a place on our next workshop, or to book a consultation with Geraldine Hoyne RGN RPN in person. Consultations cover planning ahead, and look at care planning, budgeting, enduring power of attorney and how the illness will change over time. The workshops and consultations are completely free. Please refer families to our service on 0504 91100 .
