Dementia Active is a community interest, not for profit company with an established track record in providing social activity groups for people who have a diagnosis of dementia.
Dementia is an illness which can isolate people from former friends. The value of spending time with others who can share this sense of isolation cannot be overestimated:
● We aim to create a sense of community where no one need feel apologetic or uncomfortable about not being able to do those things which in the past would have been straightforward.
● Conversation is encouraged - both socially, particularly when people arrive but also in more structured reminiscence sessions.
● Group activities are opportunities to be playful.
● The benefits overall are raised energy levels and improved cognition.
We offer a wide range of activities, for instance: topical discussions, gentle exercise, dancing, arts and crafts and every few weeks - a professional entertainer. A buffet style lunch with hot snacks is provided as well as drinks and biscuits throughout the day. Groups are small and have a high staffing to members ratio.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service, which re-starts on 2nd December 2020, after this mini lockdown!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
