Our Elderberries Group is supported by our trained staff, activity leaders and dedicated volunteers to ensure we can help to nurture and support those experiencing mild to moderate loss of cognitive functioning or have a diagnosis of cognitive impairment such as Parkinson's or Dementia to promote independent living.  Providing individual choice-based, fun activities that will aid and enhance cognitive functioning, whilst carers can relax and enjoy some much-needed respite, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is being cared for and supported. 

All of our staff and volunteers have completed Covid-19 and PPE training.  We will be wearing PPE equipment and a daily clean of the site will be carried out at the start and end of each day.
