At the Club we organise different activities every week including music, chair-based exercise, arts and crafts, board games, dancing and therapy animal visits to name a few. Our clients also enjoy interacting with each other during our hot topic discussions over coffee and lunch. We also have visiting musicians that come and play to us live and blast from the past events where we invite guests from local organisations that our clients used to be involved with, whether it’s local professional footballers, classic cars our clients used to own, or career workers such as police workers. This is always a big hit with everyone! We arrange regular intergenerational activities with the local preschool and this year we will be organising several day trips to places of interest including a boat trip and local cafes and parks. We often have visiting therapy vets visit. All of our support workers are dementia friends with the Alzheimer’s Society initiative and are the most compassionate and patient people we can find. They have also been fully vaccinated and we continue to follow covid safety protocol. We run monthly Carers Support Forums too, free of charge.
