     About Us

    Sonas apc provides a range of training, resources and supports for those on the dementia journey.

    We are continually exploring new ways to upskill care partners and enrich the lives of all of those on the dementia journey. Our focus is on psycho-social approaches and non-pharmacological interventions.

    Sonas apc is part of a community of organisations in Ireland that makes a positive difference to the lives of people with dementia, their care partners and the communities in which they live. A not-for profit organisation, Sonas apc is supported by the HSE.

    Sonas apc is a partner of the Understand Together Campaign. Understand Together is a public support, awareness and information campaign. It is one of six key elements of the Irish National Dementia Strategy.  The campaign is aimed at inspiring people to stand together with the 500,000 Irish people whose families have been affected by dementia.
