WELCOME TO FORGET-ME-NOT-CLUB

Forget-Me-Not Club is a small registered charity based in Banchory, providing dementia support across   Aberdeenshire. Our objective is to provide support to not only those living with a dementia diagnosis, but also their carers - helping to make life that little bit easier.


FMNC RESOURCE CENTRE

From our specialist resource centre in Banchory, we provide respite day-care where members are supported by our dedicated and experienced team.  Our centre is secure with a fully enclosed garden and we always prioritise the safety, health and wellbeing of our members.

We offer a varied weekly timetable with crafts, activities, exercise and live entertainment. Our members always receive a healthy 2-course lunch and refreshments during each session.  Our resource centre is intended to be a "home from home" environment where our members feel comfortable and included.

Complimenting our services are the recently new additions of Pop-Up, Outreach, Virtual and Carer Support Sessions, which are now an integral part of our Forget-Me-Not Club ethic.

A WARM WELCOME

A few words from our General Manager, Eunice Gardyne...
Whilst we run a very structured and stimulating daily timetable, full of activities and exercise we are also very flexible around our member’s needs as required because we sometimes have to change what we had planned due to the complexity of their dementia
