Deirdre Knight Day Centre
Preventing Social Isolation in Forfar
The Centre is located on the Lour Road behind Beech Hill House, a local authority residential home.We have a small garden to the side of the building which looks onto the grounds of Beech Hill House. We also have an enclosed patio area to the rear of the centre where we have BBQs etc during the summer months.
The gardens are very tranquil and wildlife friendly, squirells, rabbits, pheasants and various species of wild birds are encouraged to visit, members regularly help to fill the various feeding stations dotted about the gardens.
Meals and Mealtimes
We consider it very important for members to enjoy their meals, not only from the point of view of having a wholesome and nourishing diet, but also with regard to socialising with other members during their meals and snacks. All members are served a varied two course lunch daily, hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day with a snack provided in mid afternoon.
Special dietary needs can be catered for on request by members.
The Deirdre Knight Centre encourages an open door policy for visitors. However where possible visiting between 12pm - 1pm will be discouraged, this is to allow members to enjoy their lunch without unnecessary interruption.
