The sessions are designed for anyone living with mild to moderate dementia.

The latest offering is two new sessions at Kirkcaldy Galleries.

The first takes place on Thursday November 25, between 2:00-3:00pm, will be on local and social history.

The second, on Tuesday December 14 between 2:00-3:00pm, will be a cultural and wellbeing session.

This offers the chance to slow down, relax and find ways to be more mindful and will be a guided session by mindfulness expert Craig Gilbert, using art to help with relaxation and wellbeing.

The sessions are designed for anyone living with mild to moderate dementia so if you know of a family member or friend who you think would benefit, or if you are a carer, please spread the word. Book early to avoid disappointment as each session only caters for eight people at a time.

Samantha MacDougall, OnFife Libraries’ service development officer, said: “We are super excited to be offering these sessions and really look forward to seeing people in person for a much needed face-to-face catch up.”
