Forget Me Not Camposol had to miss several meetings during December due to the Social Centre, Camposol B being closed, but we are pleased to be able to re-open our weekly meetings and we are ready to meet clients new and old.
Our meetings will continue every Monday morning from 10.30am-1.30pm.
Starting from January 13th we will have an extra weekly meeting on Thursday mornings 10am-1pm. This extra meeting will give Carers a much-needed break knowing their loved ones are in a safe, caring environment. Every week we have two trained nurses and a number of trained carers within our group. Lunch is provided free of charge for our clients.
On December 7th we had our Christmas Lunch at the Golf Club House. Every person got a bag of sweets delivered by Santa Claus and we were entertained by Paul Pryce who gave his time free of charge to sing and host our fabulous free raffle. We can’t thank him enough and he said he has never seen so many smiling faces. Two of our ladies who help at our meetings organised the fantastic free raffle with super prizes donated by local businesses and they worked really hard making sure everyone got a prize. Thanks go to all local businesses who donated. (There are far too many to mention by name, but you know who you are.) The clients, helpers and everyone involved in Forget me Not really appreciated it.
Looking forward, we know that there are a lot of people locally that need the help of our local dementia/carers group. Forget me Not offers free respite care for carers of people with dementia/memory loss or any other long term illness. The aim within our group is to give much needed respite to the carers within our local community. Most of the group have experienced first-hand the challenges of being a carer. We realise that it’s not always easy to relinquish the care of a loved one into the care of strangers. With this in mind, if you decide to bring your loved one along to Forget Me Not, you have the decision to stay and enjoy our morning. You will be welcome and can converse with others who are in a similar position. You can decide over a period of time if you feel this is right for you and the person you are caring for.
Every week during our informal sessions we stimulate our clients with music, gentle seated exercise and many craft-related activities as well as bingo and free lunch for the clients.

Music is an amazing link to the opening of memories of people with memory loss. If you are an individual or a group that feel you could come along and have a sing song with us we would welcome you.
Forget Me Not is a registered charity and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the individuals and local companies that have donated to our cause. Without you we couldn’t exist.
