LifeCare St Bernards Club

St Bernards Club is a day centre for older people with Dementia. The club is open to people from all areas of Edinburgh if they can provide their own transport, otherwise, residents of North East and North West.

The St. Bernard’s club is run by Lifecare, who aim to support the independence of older people through day care services and also services in the home. Client groups are the frail elderly and those with dementia.

What happens there?

The St. Bernard’s Club is open Monday to Friday and offers opportunities for you to socialise and have fun through a variety of activities. There is a tea dance every second Friday.

People have told us that they particularly enjoy music and singing, reminiscence, craft activities, quizzes, crosswords and music and movement. Our garden space is very popular too and great for outdoor recreation activities. Meals during the day include morning tea/coffee and toast, a two-course lunch with different menu options to choose from, and afternoon tea and biscuits.

From time to time we also provide outings and other special activities for which we may ask a small extra charge in order to cover the cost. For example, our ‘Happy Feet Tea Dance’, which is usually held once a month on a Friday, is a big hit with many.

Carers Meetings: Relatives/Carers have the choice to attend meetings to discuss care issues relating to their relative, including six monthly reviews, risk assessments or just to pop in for a chat.
