From the Dementia Friendly Kirriemuir Project
Meeting Centres offer ongoing warm and friendly expert support to people and families affected by dementia.
At the heart of the Meeting Centre is a social club where people meet to have fun, talk to others and get help that focuses on individual needs. Meeting Centres are based on sound research evidence on what helps people to cope well in adjusting to living with the symptoms and changes that dementia brings.
What goes on in a Meeting Centre?
A team of staff and volunteers trained in the Meeting Centre ethos provide an enjoyable and flexible programme for both the person with dementia and their family carers.
All activities are designed to help people adapt to the challenges that living with dementia can bring. This involves a chance to get together socially, to be creative, to get active and to share lunch.
The social club meets three days per week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10.00am to 3.00pm.
