The Eric Liddell Centre has developed a range of services to meet the needs identified in the local and wider Edinburgh community, as a result of research and consultation with partner organizations as well as individuals in the local population.
A dedicated team of highly qualified staff and experienced and skilled volunteers provide person centred day care service to people with a diagnosis of dementia.
The service is registered with the Care Inspectorate since 2007 and was last inspected in June 2016.
The Befriending service offers one to one support and aims to remove or lessen isolation experienced by carers and promote development of self confidence and self esteem.
Carers are matched up with volunteer befrienders who usually meet up once a week for a minimum of one hour.
What they do in that time depends on what the carer needs from the relationship, so this may involve joining in sports activities, going to an evening class, cinema or just sitting having a chat. Volunteers are trained and can offer support to carers during difficult times.
