Dementia Friendly East Lothian Annual Gathering 2018: Meeting Centres
11/10/18Dementia Friendly East Lothian would like to invite those interested to attend our Annual Gathering on 11th October at 9.30am in the Maitlandfield Hotel, Haddington to find out more about the potential for developing Meeting Centres in East Lothian and join the start of a conversation about how we build on the work that communities are doing.
Meeting Centres are a local club or resource for people living with mild and moderate dementia and their friends and families and for carers. They provide support and help people cope to adjusting to life with dementia. Meeting Centres started in the Netherlands 25 years ago and research shows they have a positive effect on the lives of people with dementia and their families.
The session on the 10th is for people with dementia and their family/care partners only. The event on the 11th is opne to all.
