Woodlands Day Care Centre
Alzheimer Scotland aims to ensure nobody faces dementia alone and in order to reach that aim, locally, they have the Woodlands Day Care centre in Culduthel Road, Inverness, along with many groups such as dementia cafes, football memories and carers group. They also manage a 24 hour, seven day a week helpline and provide Dementia Advisors throughout Scotland for support. They have two such Dementia Advisors in Highland.
The community benefit grant will go to providing a garden table and chairs for the people who attend the Woodlands Day Care Centre.
Elma Mackay, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer Scotland said “Our little garden at the back of the centre is a lovely little haven for those who are attending the centre but at the moment there is nowhere for them to sit, so to have a table and chairs where they could sit and have their coffee whilst listening to the birds singing, seeing the beautiful flowers or watching some of the others pottering about in their garden would be very beneficial to those we help.”
Alzheimer Scotland aims to ensure nobody faces dementia alone. With 90,000 people living with dementia in Scotland (4,500 in Highland) and these figures expected to double in the next 15/20 years, it has never been more important to ensure the right support is in place for people affected by this illness.
Bill Hamilton, a Partner with KLM Partnership said, “We are delighted to be able to assist in providing the funds to purchase a garden table and chairs to allow those attending the centre to enjoy the garden space. We, as a Practice, are committed to working with our local communities and we wish to make a positive contribution in the communities in which we operate.”
