Michael Corcoran in our Wexford office will be hosting a joint presentation of this project in the South East in the coming weeks.

“Over the coming weeks I will be doing  a presentation in Wexford Library and in conjunction with Enniscorthy Chamber and Wexford Chamber once again using material from the Dementia Elevator team. Our last series of presentations in Wexford to retailers was very well received.”
