Description Aims and Objectives
The Guernsey Alzheimer's Association is devoted to "Caring for Carers" and their loved ones with dementia in Guernsey and the Bailiwick.
The Centre at Delancey is open frequently during the week to welcome carers, and those they care for, seeking companionship, advice or just a chat with a cup of tea.
The Centre also has a library with information to help carers
A Grant Scheme can provide modest financial support for any specific needs which carers might have and we also send donations to the organization "Alzheimer's Research" and the University of Stirling Research Department with whom we correspond.
We have an experienced carer who can spend an hour or two in a private home looking after someone to give carers a break and also a lovely lady who visits care homes to bring the well known therapy of music and singing to the residents.
Organisation and Management
The Guernsey Alzheimer's Association LBG is an entirely local organization and a member of the Association of Guernsey Charities. Our only affiliation is with Millies Foundation in Alderney which we helped to start up and which we still support.
The Association is managed by an elected committee of volunteers with the aid of a further twenty volunteers running the day to day business of the Centre.
The Association is financed entirely by fund raising activities and donations. The finances are independently audited and annual accounts are produced.
The independent "Friends of the Guernsey Alzheimer's Association" was formed to support the organization and there is a suggested membership fee of £12 per annum.
