The work of the Guernsey Alzheimerâ€™s Association is focussed around its excellent Centre at Rue des Monts, Delancey.
Many improvements have been made to the Centre. A well equipped kitchen is able to cater for the forty guests who attend our monthly lunches in the large dining room and our professional chef is always complimented on the quality of the lunches he provides.
New lighting in the lounge and more than adequate heating create a warm and welcoming venue.
As to our activities, the telephone is either manned or monitored every day and eâ€‘mails are checked all the time. So a request for help will always be answered quickly.
We are always available every Monday and alternate Wednesday afternoons and carers are welcome to come for tea and company between two and five, (for current times please refer to our diary on the news/diary page of the webiste). Of course those they care for are most welcome too.
On alternate Friday afternoons loved ones who are not very well may be safely left in our care for a time to reminisce and sing the old songs down Memory Lane. The purpose is to give the carer a break even for a short time.
Lunches on the third Thursday of every month are well attended and on alternate Wednesdays our social get together to play Euchre, dominoes, bingo and show films are proving to be very popular.
Help of a more practical nature or a grant for residents of the bailiwick can be considered too. Forms are available to apply in the strictest of confidence to the Treasurer.
Should there be a need for pastoral care, we can provide this and would be pleased to hear from anyone interested in the same.
A further exciting addition to the Centre and its environs is envisaged for summer days.
