Description

Alzheimer Scotland have recently opened their new refurbished resource centre and are therefore looking to run a timetable of events for people living with dementia and their carers - this will include singing, arts & crafts, knitting, darts, yoga and walking groups. Alzheimer Scotland need people who are able to share their skills and support, whether it is showing someone how to knit or supporting someone to make a memory tree. Sometimes it will be making a cup of tea and having a blether (cake will be provided). If you like walking then you could help support our dementia friendly walks.

Alzheimers Scotland is leading specialist demeneia charity and works to improve the lives of everyone affected by dementia. We provide information and support and a network of services and support groups from more than 60 sites around Scotland.
