A dementia-friendly disco is calling people who enjoy a “good dance” to its latest group.
Torry’s first Boogie in the Bar organisation – which aims to provide enjoyable events for people with the disease – has announced its first session on September 20.
Aberdeen’s latest dementia and disability friendly disco will take place at the White Cockade Bar, on Oscar Road, from noon-4pm.
The new Torry group has been established with the help of £2,000 funding from Dragados UK Community Investment Fund.
The group will meet on Thursday afternoons and Alzheimer’s Scotland will offer free dementia awareness training to bar staff and volunteers.
Boogie in the Bar was first set up at The Foundry as the brainchild of a woman whose husband had dementia and who loved music.
The Foundry Bar group now has around 80 attendees enjoying music and a buffet on Fridays.
