Louth/Meath branch hold regular meetings (usually in Drogheda) where we discuss relevant issues in an informal atmosphere. All members are welcome to, and encouraged to, attend.
These meetings are a valuable source of friendship, camaraderie and support. Guest speakers can be arranged on request. It's important that we keep in touch, to let each other know what's happening locally, and to help each other out when we have problems.
We have a SBHI Family Support Worker for our area who is available to help members and to liaise with health officials, schools, employers etc. on our behalf.
We are aware that members look for information on medical procedures, shunt problems, benefits, education, access, transport, travel, socialising, employment etc. Our SBHI FSW can be contacted through the branch committee.
The branch organise social outings and arrange for members to attend respite/independence training and weekends away. We are also fortunate to own a mobile home in Bettystown, where members and their families can relax for a week during the summer. We have added a 'safe play area' to the rear of the mobile.
We sometimes help with extra tuition for members who are having difficulties at school or who have fallen behind because of illness or hospital admission.
