Description

NEDC provides person- centred (outcome focused) day care and support for people living in the North East Edinburgh area whose lives have been affected directly or indirectly by dementia.

NEDC’s ethos is to provide a nurturing service, which encourages you to develop your full potential by recognising your individual needs and celebrating personal strength. NEDC can support you to live in your own home for as long as possible, delaying or avoiding the need for residential care, whilst also providing support to carers.

NEDC aims to:

  • provide fun and interesting things to do which are guided by what you want to do
  • provide time, help, advice and ‘an ear’
  • provide an option of care which may assist you to maintain independence
  • provide a high quality, best value service from friendly well trained staff and volunteers.
