Jumping in with both feet this Dementia Awareness Week!
Age UK Salford are in the mid stages of developing a day of tasters, challenges and frivolity for all the family to showcase living well with dementia in Salford. The Good Life Festival – Family Activity Day is planned as a grand finale for Dementia Awareness Week for the whole family! We have teamed up with the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre and other local partners to bring people a day with a difference.
The day will be filled with boat racing for 18 teams of Salford dementia services and those affected by dementia running alongside taster sessions for people around climbing, sailing, kayaking and treasure hunting and finished off with open water swims and a wake board challenge.
Alongside the activities we have pancakes, pasties, games, stalls, a bottle bank, pick a stick game, an ice cream van and lots more planned to keep the entire family entertained.
The day is being planned by a small group of people living with and affected by dementia
Through the development and delivery of this day we want to challenge stereotypes and challenge ourselves. We want to engage with families, friends and people living with dementia who may not be getting any ‘professional’ support. Most of all we want to have a day filled with fun, laughter and plenty of splashing!
