    STAND Dementia Friendly Meeting Centre Spaces

    STAND is a Scottish Charity (SC051652) It exists to support people across Fife who are affected by changes to their memory and day to day functioning.

    STAND is in the process of setting up Dementia Friendly Meeting Centre Spaces across the Kingdom.

    The unique feature of these spaces is that they are led by people living with a diagnosis of dementia and their families and friends, supported by workers and volunteers. 

    A Dementia Friendly Meeting Centre Space is for you if:

    • You are worried about your memory and think you may be developing dementia;
    • You are worried about a family member or friend who is struggling with memory;
    • You are being investigated for changes to your memory and day to day functioning;
    • You have been diagnosed with dementia and are waiting for Post Diagnostic Support;
    • You are in the mild to moderate stages of dementia;
    • You are actively supporting someone who has a diagnosis of dementia.

    What A Dementia Friendly Meeting Centre Space can offer you:

    • A chance to meet and chat with other people in a similar situation over a cuppa and some food;
    • An opportunity to talk to your peers, workers and volunteers and to find out what services and support might be available to you;
    • The chance to join in with fun and creative activities that will help you to stay well and keep your brain active.
