Getting to know us
Welcome to Town Break, where our philosophy revolves around a personal and holistic approach that puts the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of individuals living with dementia and their unpaid carers at the core of everything we do.
In 1992, Town Break embarked on its journey as a service provider for individuals with dementia and their unpaid caregivers, in the absence of any provisions. This charitable organization was established by Rosas Mitchell.
Initially, Town Break operated as a drop-in center, operating one day a week in the heart of Stirling town center. It provided a safe environment for unpaid caregivers to leave their loved ones with dementia, granting them valuable respite time to pursue activities that mattered to them. This is how the name "Town Break" came to be.
Over the years, Town Break has experienced significant expansion. We have not just grown, but grown tremendously! Presently, we offer a wide range of specialized support services for individuals with dementia across Forth Valley.
