Swanley Dementia Friendly Community Diary

 

Lots of details on the Swanley Dementia efforts from Geoff Parsons below but there is plenty of activity in the rest of the Sevenoaks area too.  If anyone wants to send us the details we will publish them here.

Memory-Lane-web

For example, ‘DOWN MEMORY LANE’ is a respite morning that takes place every Saturday morning at Otford Methodist Church Halls.  The volunteers are all CRB checked and have had lots of varied basic training.  They aim to give non-judgmental care to those suffering memory loss, and to stimulate memory through various activities – sitting exercises, reading newspapers & books, art activities, flower-pot gardening, cooking, music. The cost of the morning is £2.

The group leader is Carolyn Knight and she can be contacted on 01732 74 30 56.
