Dementia Friendly Banchory ‘Forget Me Not Club’
Dementia Friendly Banchory was awarded funding of £35,000, to run from August 2017 to July 2018.
Dementia Friendly Banchory used their funding to develop and strengthen their dementia friendly activities, and increase the number of people they support in the area, as well as the number and variety of services and activities they provide.
The Forget Me Not Club also acted as a catalyst for Banchory as a whole to become dementia friendly.
Their aim was to become a community “hub” and centre for excellence for the dementia community in Aberdeenshire and to act as a first point of contact for anyone who needed information and advice about dementia.
