Elderly Support

Tagsa works in four main ways to support people with dementia and other forms of memory loss:

Supporting individuals (stimulation, social contact, delaying decline, promoting wellbeing and activities)

Supporting families – respite, information, resources for learning about dementia.

Group work (social activities, specific activities to stimulate socialisation, memories and meaningful and fulfilling activities, promoting social inclusion and reducing isolation).

Awareness raising and promoting dementia friendly communities.

Engendering a Dementia friendly Community

We assist in facilitating workshops and training encouraging the wider Uist community to become dementia aware, thereby ensuring the islands become a dementia friendly community. We have information on Community activities, services, and facilities, that have proved to be dementia friendly. We also provide short-term respite care of one to four hours to allow family members and carers to have a break, go shopping, or just to have some “me-time”. Trained staff/volunteers assist in providing this for those service users who are in the early to mid- stages of dementia.
