Sonas Day Centre is located in the Walter Macken flats in Mervue in the east of Galway city.
It has been providing support to older residents in the area since the 1970’s providing daily support which enables them to continue living independently at home and reduces the risk of isolation.
Our centre is used in the evenings by a number of community support groups.
Staff and volunteers provide a welcoming environment where older people can drop in for a chat or get assistance with filling in forms or having shopping done.
The centre provides a positive environment where older people can meet their neighbours; make new friends and access support in relation to health, welfare and housing issues. Approximately thirty older people use our centre on a regular basis and we work in partnership with a number of voluntary statutory agencies to deliver the service.
