About Us


D.A.G.S. was established in 2011 by its founder Marianne Bond (Chairperson). Marianne, a retired nurse, spent over 40 years as a nurse manager in London specialising in dementia. In 2008 she moved to Lanark and noted that there was a need for support for families with a member who had a diagnosis of dementia. With the support of a healthy £500 from Marianne's workforce in London, and along with Diana McDonald (vice chair), D.A.G.S. was born. Volunteers are always required at the meetings. Should you wish to help, please get in touch.
