The Wednesday Club provides day care for up to eight people with mild to moderate dementia in an environment that is stimulating, fun and friendly. The Club is supported by a Co-ordinator, a Care Assistant and a team of dedicated local volunteers.
The Club offers a range of activities geared towards the needs, abilities and preferences of its members, and include gentle exercise, community singing, quizzes, craftwork, discussion, reminiscence and outings.
Lunch and refreshments are provided, with a small charge being made to help cover costs.
Pentland Wednesday Group is a service managed by Oxgangs Care, a locally based voluntary organization registered as a charity.
The core business of Oxgangs Care is day care for older people. Our day services and clubs are designed to help people maintain their independence by assisting them in caring for themselves, help people maintain links with the community and avoid social isolation, and provide carers with an opportunity to have their own space and time by offering relief from the stress of caring and time for themselves.
We currently have no spaces in this group, but please do not hesitate to get in touch to find out more.
