Alzheimer Scotland is Scotland's leading specialist dementia charity, working to improve the lives of everyone affected by dementia. We provide information, support and a network of services and support groups across Scotland.
Locally we aim to use our experience and skills to provide a range of high quality, responsive, therapeutic services to meet the needs of people with dementia and their carers living in Fife.
Currently we offer one-to-one support in the community across Fife, weekend day care in Kirkcaldy, day opportunities in West Fife and a range of activity and social groups within the Dementia Resource Centre in Kirkcaldy.
These groups include baking, craft, singing and football reminiscence. We also provide Fife-wide Information Cafes and Carer Support groups.
