Dementia Awareness Workshop in Head Office

We held yet another training workshop in HO this week, this time the subject matter was dementia awareness. Local Alzheimers Scotland expert Mandy Pool delivered an excellent awareness session on dementia and Alzheimers to a group of volunteer befrienders and staff. Food Train is proud to be a Dementia Friendly organisation. Partnership working in action.

More volunteer befrienders have been recruited and trained in the Stewartry locality this month as we build a super team of community spirited people to help our local older people feel less lonely and isolated. More info available from our Development Officer, Isobel Henkelmann, who is based in the heart of the Stewartry in Castle Douglas - call Isobel on 01556 288427 for more information on the Friends service.
