Starting on Tuesday 8 March, a new activity hub has been set up for people living with dementia as well as for their carers, families and friends.

The activity hub is designed to offer stimulating activities for those living with dementia as well as offering the opportunity for carers to socialise and share information. Activities will include painting, new age kurling and other interactive activities designed to be enjoyed by all. Free refreshments are also available.

Carly Togher, Health & Wellbeing Manager for 1Life who set up the hub said:

The hub is designed to welcome people living with dementia and their carers. Friends and family are welcome to attend as it will be a useful recourse to find out more about dementia as well as offering support for one another. We have already received positive comments about the hub and I’m really looking forward to them kicking off. We’re already looking in to setting up another hub in another part of the district and hope to be able to share this information soon.

The first activity hub will take place on Tuesday 8 March at 10am to 12noon at St Wilfrid’s Church Hall, 24 Church Lane, Metheringham, LN4 3HA. Each session will take place on the second Tuesday of the month thereafter. Everyone is welcome to attend; parking will also be available at the Star and Garter pub on Princes Street, LN4 3BX and is just a short walk to the church hall.

Sensory Strolls are still proving to be very popular at Whisby Nature Park and are ideal for people living with dementia and their carers; walks are designed to stimulate the senses and to enjoy the outdoors. Refreshments are also available to purchase from the Boardwalk Cafe afterwards.

Sensory strolls take place on the first Tuesday of the month at 11am. Please meet outside the Natural World Centre – please note there is a £2 parking charge.
