Our virtual memory group, Making Memories Oxfordshire, offers a place where people living with dementia can get together with their peers and participate in stimulating conversations and games.
What is Our Virtual Memory Group?
In our memory group, members have the chance to talk and take part in games that are tailor made to help evoke memories and prompt conversations, such as, ‘Name that ice-cream’, ‘A question of sport quiz’, ‘Musicals’, ‘Favourite photos’, and more. Members also share many laughs and may end up telling stories that even close family have never heard before.
A primary carer is welcome to join and may find the sessions stimulate new conversation and memories with your loved one. Alternatively you may want to use it as a short period of respite whilst your loved one is being entertained.
The group runs every second Tuesday of the month and is led by one of our dedicated Dementia Advisors, and last about an hour.
