What we offer

The centre aims to support people with dementia, their families, relatives and friends at any stage of the illness. The following support is on offer; -

  • Information and advice
  • Community activities for people with dementia and carers
  • Peer support groups for people with dementia and carers.

See below for a full list of what is available in the East Ayrshire area.

In addition to our varied activity calendar, we are also offering longer half-day opportunities to deliver therapeutic outcomes and provide carer respite in the form of ‘The Sessions’.  You’ll notice certain key differences from our usual activities immediately.

Firstly, they last longer – we want to be able to take the time to let skills develop and nurture talent, and we want to allow carers proper respite. 

Secondly, they build towards a tangible result, such as, a picture, a foreign language, a performance – we want to stimulate and create. 

Thirdly, they include lunch – the social glue of a shared meal will be very important to success. 

And finally, there’s a cost attached – but a cost that we believe is very reasonable, and SDS payments can be used.
