• Designed for people with dementia living at home to attend with their main carer.
• If the main carer can’t come, or the person lives alone, the person with dementia can come with someone else (friend, neighbour, relative or a paid companion).
• Booking is helpful but not essential.

Memory Clubs

Our Memory Clubs meet twice a month in 5 different locations with the Bradford District to bring together people with dementia and those who care for them.

During the first half of meetings people enjoy refreshments together whilst participating in reminiscence discussions, games, sing-a-longs and other dementia-friendly activities.

In the second half carers can go through to another room to talk to each other in confidence if they wish whilst we continue dementia-friendly activities in the main room.

Carers can attend meetings alone (for example if the person with dementia is at day care or in residential care) but people with dementia need to be accompanied by a supporter. This is usually the main carer but it does not have to be, it could be a friend, neighbour, relative or paid companion.

Please contact Elizabeth or Susan to book using the contact details below before coming to your first meeting.
