Dementia

The day centre at Elizabeth House is not registered to care for the elderly mentally ill and our volunteers have no special training in this field. Therefore, we cannot accept members who have severe confusion, aggressive behaviour or dementia that affects their ability to engage in conversation with others. We are happy to accept a trial period of one day a week for up to four weeks in appropriate cases.

On Thursday afternoons 3pm-5pm, Rendezvous at Elizabeth House welcomes people with Alzheimers and dementia and their carers for company and support. This valuable community service is open to all. For helpful advice and more information, call Catie Sharples on 07709 524384.
