Supporting Idle Memory Club

Our guest on March 11th was Dr Elizabeth Milwain who spoke about  The Memory Tree CIC Memory Clubs that facilitate meetings and support for people with dementia and their carers.

Clubs provide time together with other people sharing common issues. Separate groups are formed for Carer Support and for Memory Support activities such as reminiscence therapy, music , simple cooking  and crafts.

Elizabeth explained a shortfall of funds for The Idle Memory Club that had been brought to our attention by Rotarian Jeff Simmonite and a problem in paying the cost of a meeting room.
