Forget Me Not
Posted by Birdston Nursing Home
The team at Birdston Nursing Home are delighted to welcome Stephen, a volunteer from Forget Me Not, part of Alzheimers Scotland, is presently working with one of our gentlemen residents.
Our service user enjoys and benefits from spending one-to-one time with Stephen playing cards and chatting. Stephen says, " I very much enjoy the visitis I make to the Home and am very impressed with the standard of care I witness." He continued, " Birdston offers a great environment for its residents."
The Forget me not service supports people with dementia in care homes and hospital wards who may be isolated and feeling alone, by matching them up with a volunteer. Befrienders offer companionship and support to do the things they enjoy. This can be anything from visiting the local café and going for walks, to visiting the theatre, or simply just chatting.
