£84,000 windfall for Stirling dementia befriending service
A project which provides befriending support for people with dementia in Stirling has been given a funding boost of £84,000.
The five year funding has been awarded to Town Break, a charity providing services to support people with dementia and their carers within the Stirling District.
The befriending initiative is geared towards people who have early to moderate dementia, with an emphasis on people who may not receive other support or those who have no carers and live alone. Each session is based on the idea of two friends meeting to chat about the things that they are interested in.
