Description

Listening to a client, helping them with an activity can be very rewarding. Activities include reminiscence - from gathering a person's life story to puting on an exhibition about the history of the High Street, gardening, outings, singing, dancing, floral art, jigsaws painting, arts & crafts etc. The day centre is a very happy and sociable place. Volunteers find it very rewarding and a lot of fun.
The training that is offered is: Dementia Awareness, Heart Start, First Aid, Moving and Handling, Passenger Assistance and Intro to Food Handling.

Organisation aims and objectives

A new purpose built day centre opened in North Berwick in January 2005.

The day centre provides a safe environment with a lovely garden. Activities are organised to offer something for everyone. A home made 2 course lunch is served to members.
