Run by 'Home Instead: Our aim is to reduce boredom, frustration and agitation in providing a welcoming and friendly atmosphere to engage in fun activities and companionship specifically aimed at our isolated community, their families, carers and their loved ones.
With an ageing population, cases of dementia are increasing, which means that more and more people in the local area will be affected by the condition at some point in their lives.
It is our hope that by educating the local community, we can enhance dementia awareness through positive social interaction as our mission is to create a dementia friendly community.
We are working in alliance at improving services within our Dementia community by bringing this free service twice each month, with the support of generous donations, guest speaker backing, assistance and volunteers. I believe that staying both engaged and stimulated helps to lift a person’s spirit and sense of accomplishment.
