Civic Reception at Ayr Town Hall hosted by Provost Helen Moonie to celebrate Volunteers’ Week (June 2019)

AGE SCOTLAND Early Stage Dementia Project:
93,000 people in Scotland have dementia, a number expected to rise steeply over coming years.  Dementia is a serious topic, but that doesn’t mean that learning about it can’t be fun.  In fact learning, that’s enjoyable, is more likely to be remembered.  That’s why Age Scotland has designed workshops so that everyone can join in and have fun.  Free dementia awareness workshops for Age Scotland Member Groups, of which OiR Ayr is one.  The workshops cover:

  • Dementia – what it is, its early signs and symptoms
  • How to communicate with and include someone who has early stage dementia
  • How to reduce the risk of getting dementia

Short workshop (60-90 minutes) Ideal for speaker slots at group meetings – up to 32 participants.

Long workshop (2½ hours) Ideal for volunteers in more formal roles and staff members – up to 16 participants.

Tel: 0333 323 2400 or email ESDTeam@agescotland.org.uk  You will find lots of helpful information and advice on the Early Stage Dementia Project on the Age Scotland website.


Thinking of starting your own activity group?

You don’t  need to look for premises, we’ll do that for you.
You don’t need a constitution, the OiR constitution covers you.
You don’t need to open a bank account, the OiR has one.
You don’t need public liability insurance, the OiR has that in place.
You don’t need a web site, The OiR can create a page for you on the OiR web site.

All you need to provide is a good idea for an activity, along with a few enthusiasts, and we’ll do the rest.
