The group offers fun and engaging activities and social workshops designed to improve memory, cognitive function and mood in a safe, supportive, friendly and relaxed environment. Groups are kept small (max 8 participants) and meet for 2 hours each week to socialise, chat, enjoy games, activities and a cuppa and a scone.

Some examples of the of activities and social workshops include:

  • Musical Me – musical workshops to sing along, dance and chat about music
  • Arts and crafts - art class / mindfulness colouring / origami sessions
  •  Games days - board games / bingo / cards
  • Reminiscence activities - memory boxes
  • Sensory stimulation – floor parachute / ribbons
  • Exercise – chair-based exercises, movement to music
  • Pet therapy – cuppa, chat and a pat

The group takes a person-centred approach and will therefore provide a range of activity options to participate in. 

During the session, carers are welcome to use our on-site gym(when at the Round House), get together for a coffee or head out. If there are activities that would benefit from a carer present we will let you know in advance.

Support for carers
During the sessions or at any other time, we offer access to our free support services including: information, advice, welfare benefits checks and applications, advocacy, befriending, health and wellbeing and bereavement support, just ask our facilitator.
