To Provide support in the community …
…. we need your ongoing support
Founded in 1999 the Forget-Me-Not Club provides invaluable support to those living with and caring for people with dementia. With a dedicated and highly qualified team of staff and volunteers, we run a host of activities in Banchory and upper Deeside.
Whilst providing a diverse programme of activities at Bennett House, our resource centre in Banchory, we have also set up a branch of their charity named Active Forget Me Not. This allows many younger and physically fit people living with dementia an opportunity to continue taking part in sports and active pursuits that they love.
As well as providing activities for people with dementia, Forget-Me-Not also advises and educates carers on the complexities of the disease. Providing information and knowledge of things that can be done to help, from coping strategies to financial and other resources available, allowing clients to stay in their own homes for longer.
The Forget-Me-Not Club currently provides over 600 hours of free care per week, only taking donations and relying on fundraising in order to provide our varied and extensive services. We strive provide a life line for families living with dementia and to make our community as dementia friendly as possible.
