About Us

The only kind of dignity which is genuine, is that which is not diminished by the indifference of others. (Dag Hammarskjold)

In South Ayrshire, there are more than 2500 people diagnosed with dementia.

South Ayrshire Dementia Support Association (SADSA) is a charitable organisation providing specialised day care for those diagnosed with dementia, seven days each week.

We strive to continuously provide quality care, in a friendly environment, getting to know our clients and appreciate their needs and likes – including dietary requirements and we also support indoor and outdoor activities for fun and stimulation.

SADSA also provides support for our clients’ carers and families, through carers’ meetings, through information sharing and through making time to share concerns and fears about loved ones.

SADSA Day Care facilities allow our clients to be themselves, and to share in activities, meals and fun while carers can continue to earn income, pursue their education or, simply gain time for themselves, knowing that their loved one is in a safe, caring and stimulating environment.

Our Charity works in support of clients referred to us by the local authority and in direct response to requests for care by private individuals and their families.

Call the team for information or arrange to visit the day care centres in Ayr or Prestwick on 01292 288396 or 01292 474623.
