If you are concerned about your memory, The Crystal Project can support you.
Memory Resource Room
If you are concerned about your memory you can meet with a HSE Occupational Therapist to discuss the issues you are experiencing. Advice can be given on practical ways of dealing with your memory loss and how to keep mentally active. This is not an assessment service.
Please view the Memory Resource Room page for more information or click on the Memory Resource Room leaflet (below).
Brain Health Group
You may also be interested in attending a six brain health group, facilitated by a HSE Occupational Therapist. Topics covered include how memory works, staying mentally, physically and socially active and building your cognitive reserve. Each week we look at a different memory strategy. These sessions are held in Mallow Primary Healthcare Centre. You may be invited to attend an appointment before beginning the group to ascertain if it will meet your needs.
Singing for the Brain
You can also come to ‘Singing for the Brain’, a weekly group for anyone who enjoys singing. This group has been running since January 2015 and is facilitated by Fiona Flavin, the talented musician. Each week we do warm up activities, sing well known pieces followed by a sing along where anyone can lead us in their favorite song. Tea and coffee are provided at this really sociable group. No talent or experience are necessary attend and all are welcome!
Singing for the Brain is held every Thursday afternoon in Mallow Primary Healthcare Centre.
Singing for the Brain is also held in Fermoy and Mitchelstown. For more information, contact the project.
