What we do

Our vision is for our communities in the Highlands to recognise and embrace the challenges a life with dementia presents to the families affected, enabling them to live life to its full potential.


Each month we host a range of varied and enjoyable community events at the Helmsdale Well-being Hub. We also hold one-off community activities and events throughout the year.
