Special Features
Are you affected by dementia ?

If you are supporting a family member with dementia or have a friend or neighbour with dementia, then the answer is yes, you are affected by dementia.

The symptoms of dementia progress over time and affect not just memory but the ability to undertake daily tasks, communication, mood and emotion.

Support Groups: we run meetings for our support group, once a month, the first tuesday - at our office at Solway Showgrounds, Doug Lamb Building, 1.30 pm til 3pm,

The aim of these meeting is to provide a safe environment in which people who are supporting a person affected by dementia can meet and share their experiences, by meeting together it helps us to understand that we are not alone.
