On the 11th of October a small group of S5 raised money for Banchory's Forget-Me-Not Club by cycling from Banchory to Potarch and back along the Deeside Way.
Forget me not, 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.
