Mindful Dementia Care

Offering practical, emotional and social support to people living with mild to moderate dementia and their family carers.

Mindful Dementia Care is based on the principles of the Meeting Centre Support Program (MCSP), the MCSP model is a person-centred, comprehensive and integrated dementia care program.

The level of support provided at Mindful Dementia Care enables people living with dementia and their families to adjust to the condition and continue to live life with dementia.

Family carers can participate in the program in the form of information sessions, discussion groups or seek assistance in managing practical, emotional and social aspects of dementia care. Various social activities/ events are available for both, the person living with dementia and their family carers.
