Carers Support Group
We are holding a Carers Support Group every Wednesday afternoon between 2:00 - 4:00 at our Delancey Centre. This session is supported by and run in conjunction with the Memory Clinic team. Guest speakers attend every week to talk on a variety of topics related to Dementia. Please feel free to just turn up where a warm welcome awaits you and your loved one. Whilst you listen to the speaker our volunteers will look after your loved one in the comfort of our lounge.
We are a committee of seven currently and are looking to increase to perhaps 8 or even 9 members. Should this kind of challenge be something that you could udertake then please let us know. Your skills need not be specific although a financial background would be beneficial. Please contact us on 245121 for a chat.
Flag Day Thanks
Thank you to our nearly 90 amazing volunteers who last Saturday braved the elements (some of them not particularly nice) to help us with our Annual Flag Day. It may only have been an hour of your time, but to us it means absolutely everything. A thank you to Royal Bank of Canada (at Alliance) and Aladdin’s Cave who organised their own collectors for the day, and to everyone who donated money, no matter how small or large, we sincerely thank you all. We will let you know the final sum raised once we have counted every penny and dried out the notes from Liberation Monument. Barbara Giles, Chairman
Volunteer Drivers Wanted
We are looking for volunteers who could help with drop-offs & collections to & from our Centre in Delancey. If you would like a little more information on this then we would love to hear from you. Even if you have just a couple of hours a week to spare, then please contact us on 245121 or email the office on firstname.lastname@example.org
We are always looking for new volunteers to help out at the various social events we hold at Delancey Centre, and at our various fund raising events that we hold throughout the year. If you would like to find out a little more on any of the above then we would love to hear from you. Even if you have just an hour or two from time to time, then please contact us on 245121 or email the office on email@example.com
Do you have an hour or two to spare just occasionally, then why not contact the Guernsey Alzheimer's Association to find out more information. Your commitment does not have to be every week, just occasionally. Tel 245121 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer with a legal background.
We are looking for a volunteer who might be a legally minded/qualified person who could offer advice and perhaps see through applications for Powers of Attorney and Guardianship and perhaps even assume the role in the event of there being just no one else to take it on. Should you be interested in this volunteer position, then please contact us on 245121 for further information.
