Friendly Skilled Staff

However their day has begun, clients know they will get a warm greeting on their arrival at Dundee Age Concern. 

Our staff have a philosophy of treating everyone like their own loved ones.  Cheery quips and banter are the order of the day.

Our Chairperson and Centre Co-ordinator are qualified trainers in Best Practice in Dementia Care and many of our staff are now qualified in this field. They know all our clients well as individuals and respond effectively to each client, allaying fears, soothing anxieties and helping them to engage with activities which bring them pleasure. Dundee Age Concern understand the challenges and difficulties of living with dementia, the effects of restricted mobility, social isolation and consequently are committed to providing a structured social environment.
