We are delighted to announce that we are extending our COVID-19 funding support for a further three months, to 31 December 2020. Our funding support includes the packing and delivery costs of groceries delivered by Marion's Shop and Rousay Deliveries as well as the delivery costs of the Taversoe's weekend take-out meals. We are also continuing to fund The Triangle Club's weekly 2-course meal from The Taversoe, which has proved hugely popular. We also continue to supply PPE free of charge, which can be collected from the phone box at Rousay Pier.
A Message from our Well-Being Co-ordinator
In response to existing lockdown restrictions, the Dementia Dog team are developing new fun online support services while our face to face therapy sessions are on hold.
This leaflet is designed for dementia support staff to tell you more about these new services - how they help and can complement and enhance other online activities you are undertaking.

I would like to apologise for being quiet and not replying to emails this last couple of weeks. Many of you may have heard already, but, for those who haven't; I managed to break my leg in a ridiculous manner and had to have an operation on it, so I have been resting.
I am now back to working my normal hours, however, due to the injury and doctors orders I am currently working from home so if you need to get in touch you can contact me via:
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Mobile: 07948466380
I understand calls to mobiles can be costly so feel free to request that I call you back and I will do so promptly.
My hours of work are:
Wednesday 9am-11am 1:30pm-3:30pm
Friday 9am-11am 1:30pm-3:30pm
