Ross Meeting Centre opened in March 2017 and is a new local service for people with mild/moderate dementia providing support for both people with dementia and their carers. It provides a person centred approach giving shared benefits and is based on the Dutch model as piloted in Droitwich Spa and Leominster. It is open from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm every Wednesday.
There is a wonderful warm and friendly atmosphere. When I visited Lynn Kay of Beat It percussion was running a drumming and bell ringing session. You can see the group in the photo above. We had a brilliant time and we were pretty chuffed with our rendition of All Things Bright and Beautiful.
The Ross Meeting Centre is supported by Dr Simon Lennane of Alton Street Surgery and the Community Dementia Nurses (2G|) as well as the Ross Mental Health Steering Group. The contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org
