Age UK Cheshire’s Bright Memories Outdoor Activity groups will provide supportive opportunities for people living with dementia and their carers to spend time outdoors doing activities that they enjoy.
Spending time outdoors is proven to have physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages and backgrounds.
The service is available to anyone aged over 50, who is living with dementia and their spouse / carer. The activities will take place in, or near to: Blacon, Boughton, Handbridge, Hoole, Lache, Upton and Winsford, but people outside of those groups are welcome to attend. The groups will meet regularly throughout the year and the sessions will last no more than two hours. The groups will do activities that the participants want to do and suggestions for future sessions are welcome.
If you would like to meet new people whilst enjoying the outdoors, please get in touch to find out more.
