Support for people with dementia and their families in Juniper Green, Currie and Balerno.
This local voluntary group works to create safe, resilient communities where families and carers living with dementia can feel included and supported. They also cater for anyone 65 and over living in isolation and loneliness.
Dementia Friendly Pentlands offers activities that help people with dementia socialise and participate in activities in a welcoming environment. Its regular “The Meeting Place” Cafe offers safe spaces to socialise and share experiences, while also enjoying refreshments, music, exercises and craft activities. The cafe is open every Monday at 42nd Pentlands Scout group at 99 Forthview Crescent Currie. They also offer lunch at a small cost. Their sister cafe The Palm Cafe is open on the last Tuesday of the Month but is currently operating at reduced hours.
