Why don\’t you try? : Find a dementia support community
Over 850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia – that\’s one in six people over 80. We offer community-based support services for people living with dementia and their carers to improve their quality of life.
Activities at our dementia day centres are designed to be stimulating for the brain in a relaxed environment. There is usually an option to arrange transport to and from the venue.
Most of the other activities and classes run by local Age UKs are suitable for people with dementia, but if you are unsure it\’s best to speak to the class organiser before attending.
Some of our classes are specifically for people with dementia to help to improve their mood and memory, such as:
- Singing for the brain
- Dance for dementia
- Art for dementia
- Seated exercise
- Memory cafes
Here\’s a tip for you to try this week :
Speak to a local Dementia support group, Arrange an appointment with a carer buddy to talk through what are you thinking and feeling, Spend time talking with your support network such as family and friends about what you are going through,
You can visit the Bridgit Shop at anytime to find our what products and services can support you.
