Our doors open at 10.00am on the 16th October.
We are very happy to welcome members of the Share Care Community Club to a club with a new name – Holton Elder Active Club. It will be run by Dementia Active, an organisation with an established track record in providing social activity groups for people who have a diagnosis of dementia.
After a welcome drink and sharing of news we will organise a variety of activities including:
- topical discussions
- gentle exercise
- ball/balloon games
- more physically active games for those more able
- arts and crafts
- table games
- digital technology – laptops and iPad apps
In addition we encourage club members to bring their own interests and hobbies to share with others and we will help to facilitate this.
We will provide a buffet style lunch, with some hot snacks as well.
We aim to bring in ‘outside’ entertainment every few weeks, in the form of a singer/ magician/ bands etc., all of whom are dementia friendly.
For those with a diagnosis of dementia the session will end at 2.00pm and members can be collected by friends/relatives. Our experience is that a four hour session filled with activities is long enough for most people.
The rest of the Elder Active Club members are very welcome to stay with us until we close at 3.00pm and enjoy for instance – watching a film or playing board games.
Sessions cost £35.00 for those with a diagnosis of dementia and £22 for those who come to socialise and meet friends.
Volunteer drivers (if available) can collect and drop off if required with an additional £4.00 being charged and donated to the driver.
Bookings can be made through our website:- www.dementiactive.co.uk for anyone with a dementia diagnosis.
