About the event

WHO IS THE MEETING CENTRE FOR?

Anyone who has mild to moderate dementia living in the local area. There is no need for a diagnosis. Meeting centres work best when someone living with dementia comes along with a family member, carer or friend. The idea behind a meeting centre is that the whole family needs to adjust to the changes that dementia can bring so we look to develop awareness and skills in people who are closest to the person living with dementia.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A MEETING CENTRE?

Meeting centres are really owned by the members who attend. It is their group and everyone is involved in how meeting centres run. Regular planning sessions are held where members can put forward ideas of what they would like to do over the coming month. This can include:

  • Friendly and informative discussion groups
  • Talks from professionals around dementia specific issues
  • Assistance and support with practical, emotional and social issues
  • Peer support from members who are living through similar issues

The majority of the session is about warmth, fun, understanding and support.
