Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Forget Me Not will not meet until the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and we are all safe.
Forget Me Not offers free respite care for Carers of people with Alzheimer’s/Dementia, or any long-term illness. Under normal circumstances come and meet our team on any Monday morning for a cup of tea and an informal chat. This enables Carers to enjoy some time for themselves, knowing that the person that they care for is in capable and qualified hands. Our service is free thanks to the generosity of local individuals and groups that have donated and raised funds for Forget Me Not over the years. We thank everyone who has donated in any way to this small but essential group. We miss you all.
As our client numbers are always growing, we need more volunteers. No experience is necessary; just an understanding of Dementia, empathy and a smile. We have fully qualified nurses to chat to you and give you support.
Our Jumble Sales at Camposol Social Centre will continue once we have permission and we look forward to seeing you all again on the first Saturday of each month. Times and dates are to be confirmed.
Prior to the November COVID restrictions and social distancing, the Forget Me Not group met for a pre-Christmas lunch at the Camposol Golf Club restaurant. It was uplifting to see so many of our clients, carers and volunteers. Big thanks to the Golf Club restaurant for accommodating us safely and serving a delicious meal with a smile.
All of us at Forget Me Not wish everyone a relaxing, peaceful Christmas and a healthy, safe, Happy New Year.
