Tea Days took place at the Coolcotts Centre and at Kerlogue Nursing Home to mark last Thursday's (May 7) Alzheimers' Tea Day.
The Coolcotts event was organised by the Wexford guild of the ICA.
There are 23,800 people living with dementia in Leinster and 1,500 of these live in Wexford - a figure set to double in a generation.
Services provided by the County Wexford branch of The Alzheimer's Society of Ireland (ASI) are a vital lifeline for people living with dementia and the annual Alzheimer's Tea Day is its biggest fundraiser.
All monies raised locally stay local and support Alzheimer services in Wexford which include day care, home care, support groups, social club, alzheimer café and family carer education programme.
