Dunbar Dementia Carers Support Group

This  friendly and welcoming group was formed in March 2015, and has continued to grow in response to local demand.  Our Thursday group meets weekly in Gibb Room 1 at the Bleachingfield Centre, Dunbar,      (2 30 – 3 30pm) is currently full, but we do have spaces in our new Wed group which meets 11 30 –     12 30, also in Gibb Room 1 at the Bleachingfield Centre.  Both groups offer support, companionship and laughter for those family members caring for someone who is living with a diagnosis of a dementia related condition.

Over time, the group have enjoyed visits at their weekly meetings by local authors, guest speakers and other community groups, as well as taking part in Creative Writing Sessions and several Art Workshops.  Social lunches and get-togethers, as well outings to a dementia-friendly event at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Pantomime at the Brunton Hall, and a visit to The Scottish Parliament have been enjoyed by all.  Most of all, however, the emphasis at our meetings is on coming together, as friends, to help make life that bit better and happier for all concerned.
