We hold weekly group support sessions for people living with dementia and their carers. Supported by Effro, we are delivering activities that engage memories and thinking skills using reminiscence therapy and cognitive stimulation therapies. The sessions are great fun for everyone and bring joy and laughter to people’s lives. We work with the Memory Clinic at Keir Hardie Health Park to identity people living with dementia and their carers who need support. From the Centre, New Horizons also provide wellbeing workshops for carers in the borough.
Our regular sessions are also dementia friendly and all staff have been trained to be dementia friends.
