Respite Unit Co-workers salary

Organisation : Hollies Day Centre SCIO
Grant Amount : £ 18,000

The Hollies respite unit is the only service in the Musselburgh area providing respite to clients with early mid dementia and their carers. Many people stop going outside because of a fear of getting lost, or feeling overwhelmed by the pace of traffic and people, and this compounds feelings of loneliness and social isolation. We know that having a place to go that is in a central location (even one day a week) is enough to reduce feelings of isolation and improve well-being. Attending the Hollies means meeting old friends and making new ones, being active and stimulated and feeling once again a part of society.
