Established in 1990 by local members of the Granton and Leith Methodist Churches, North Edinburgh Dementia Care continues to provide essential care and support for people living with dementia and their carers.
The Churches recognised the need to support local people with dementia and provided a safe and friendly environment where people enjoyed reminiscence groups, knitting, card games and bingo. From this, The North Edinburgh Churches Dementia Project was formed.
During the following years the project continued to grow and develop, and in 1994 it became a company limited by guarantee, renamed ‘The North Edinburgh Dementia Project’.
The project has moved a few times to different areas within the grounds of the old Eastern General hospital but we now comfortably stand in a purpose built building in Fleming Place that allows us to continue to deliver the service once started all those years ago.
