Description

Our service users love having the garden area at our centre, some like to go out and see what's growing and others like to do some gardening themselves. If you have some knowledge of garden maintenance and some spare time, it would be good to have you join our team. We would welcome volunteers to help with the maintenance of our garden. They would be making a valuable contribution to our service and creating a good deal of pleasure for our service users.

Organisation aims and objectives

New Rannoch is a day centre for older people with dementia. Our aim is to provide a quality, person centred, flexible and evidence based service that supports individual strengths, interests and levels of independence to enable people with dementia to remain valued, active and independent in their communities.
