Droitwich Spa Meeting Centre provides a place where you are supported to understand and adapt to living with dementia.
Due to the national lockdown which started on 5/1/21 we have temporarily closed our Droitwich Spa Meeting Centre. We are keeping in regular contact with our members and their carers to ensure they have everything they need. Keep checking our website for updates about when we are able to reopen.
If you or someone you know needs support please contact us.
Read about the precautions we have put in place to keep all our members, carers, volunteers and staff safe whilst at our Droitwich Spa Meeting Centre.
What is the Meeting Centre?
The Droitwich Spa Meeting Centre is a totally member focussed group where all the activities and daily discussions are designed to interact and engage with the members.
We provide Carer Discussion Groups which give the carers an opportunity to talk with other carers and centre staff, and to get involved with the centre activities as much or as little as they want.
The ultimate objective of the meeting centre is to give members and carers the tools and emotional support to adapt to the diagnosis, and for their continued wellbeing to live well with dementia.
