afternoon, loved his lunch and his present, Thank you all so much”

Dementia Support Edinburgh

Services for Adults & Older People:

Beacon Club: This is an enriching and stimulating day care service for older people with
dementia, connecting with dedicated staff and nurturing volunteers. We believe that
people with dementia are entitled to respect and dignity and we are passionate about
improving the quality of life for our members and their carers in South Edinburgh

Community Link Workers: Community Link Workers are based in several GP practices across
Edinburgh. They help people to take greater control of their health and wellbeing by linking
them to a wealth of Third Sector organisations and resources. Through this holistic approach,
the Community Link Workers support people to build confidence, set goals and
overcome barriers to improve their wellbeing and strengthen their community connections.

Space Age Connections: An exciting new project with the aim of improving the quality of life of
people who have had a recent/ early dementia diagnosis and their unpaid carers. A one
to one outreach service provided by a team of trained volunteers (connectors) who will
offer encouragement, companionship and connections to help people participate in more
social, leisure and community activities
