MAST was set up to create a centre of excellence with the aim of reaching out into the community to provide up to date information and advice on all forms of memory loss.
We help family members, staff, and organisations to have a better understanding of each type of diagnosis, associated behaviours and also how to approach and relate to individuals to maintain the best possible level of care, communication and quality of life.
MAST meetings help family and friends build on their knowledge and understanding of dementia, develop new skills and access practical help. The sessions are held across a number of our homes and are open for anyone to attend, free of charge. Each meeting starts with a presentation followed by a question and answer session, with plenty of time for discussion and sharing of experiences over coffee and cake. We look forward to relaunching this programme of support meetings when the current Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.
