Dementia Action Alliance free “Memory Lane” weekly activity at Japonic Court
Following the announced closure of the Shawfield Day Centre, volunteers from the Ash Parish Dementia Action Alliance (APDAA) are offering a new free weekly activity called Memory Lane. It welcomes any elderly person to join its group supporting people with dementia, and those are affected by it.
Lyn Day (chairperson for APDAA) told Ash Parish News that “we are all so angry to losing so much for the elderly in the parish that if we can fill a little gap once a week to bring some happiness. This is why although we support people living with dementia and their carers we are opening Memory Lane to all elderly people of the parish“.
The first Memory Lane is advertised to start on Monday 9th 1:30pm until 2:30pm at the Benson room at Japonica Court. The group plans to meet for a sing-a-long, cup of tea/coffee and biscuit every monday. Singing helps recall positive memories and emotions for those with or without dementia.
Musicians and singers wanted
The APDDA is looking for volunteers to share their talents on Mondays, leading the group with their sing-alongs. If you would like more information please contact the APDAA for more information.
