Alzheimer Scotland has released their latest What’s Online document, as well as information on a new supported art class and archaeology sessions.
What’s Online lists local (and national) support and activities for people living with dementia, and is available to view or download as a pdf from the CVS Falkirk website.
Alternatively, for information on local activities, visit the Alzheimer Scotland Falkirk Facebook page.
- Art Classes
The supported art classes start at 11am on Tuesday 6th April, with this first session inspired by the beginning of spring.
Each participant can pick a picture of their favourite place in springtime, or a picture of their favourite flowers, that they would like to paint. This will be drawn on a canvas and delivered by post, along with art materials and photos of their chosen picture. Each session will begin with 10 – 15 minutes looking at a presentation of painting inspiration and spring-themed content, before spending the rest of the hour painting with the group.
Classes are open to both carers and people living with dementia, with a cost per place of £25 (including materials) for the full block.

“Whisky and Water!” focuses on the Rosebank Distillery and the Lock Keeper’s Cottage, where Archaeology Scotland has carried out archaeological digs. The session will explore the site and the history of this part of the town.
