Ross Meeting Centre

The Ross Meeting Centre is based on a model of dementia care used in Holland for several years and piloted in Leominster and Droitwich in the UK.

It is a local service for people with mild/ moderate dementia, providing support for both people with dementia and their carers. It has a person centred approach giving shared benefits.

The aim is for those with mild to moderate dementia to socialise and participate with their carers in a variety of activities, including mental and physical exercise, reminiscence, crafts, song and music, outings and preparing lunch which will be shared in the group.

In addition carers will have the benefit of socialising with other carers, as well as the opportunity on occasion to meet health care professionals and others who may be able to support them in their caring role.

The Ross Meeting Centre is supported by the doctors of Alton Street and Pendeen Surgeries and the Community Dementia Nurses (2G), as well as the Ross Mental Health Steering Group.
