A new Alzheimer Society of Ireland (ASI) daycare centre has been granted planning permission in Kildangan.

The centre is expected to be open soon, as it is already an existing building.

A bus will run to transport people to and from the centre, according to Kildare Senator Fiona O' Loughlin.

The ASI have been operating daycare centres in the county for over 20 years.

Previously the centre operated out of Monasterevin's Drogheda Street (2003), GAA Centre (2015), Moore Abbey (2015-2016), Kildare town's Dunmurray Springs (2017) & Mill Lane (2019), in Naas.

The location in  Kildangan is located:

  • 6 minutes from Monasterevin
  • 10 minutes from Kildare town
  • 14 minutes from Athy
  • 18 minutes from Newbridge
  • 25 minutes from Naas

Approximately 1,500 are currently living with dementia in Co. Kildare.
