Shared Remembrance: To Absent Friends

This event is for carers, people with dementia and befrienders, who will be invited to contribute to a ‘To Absent Friends’ framed ‘wall’. We will offer space in which people can remember those who have died, and have a chance to share stories together in an emotionally safe environment. The event will also offer the opportunity for care staff to remember people they have cared for.

The framed final ‘To Absent Friends’ piece will be dedicated and displayed in an appropriate location in the centre, where anyone who has contributed could visit at any time. The event will include making the piece, and a chance to light a candle for those being remembered, and time to share memories and stories over afternoon tea.

Thursday 2 November
Eric Liddell Centre, Edinburgh. The event is private.
