Remember Together group sessions
Age UK Leeds is encouraging older people living with dementia to join one of our new groups to help provide support and improve their wellbeing through a range of activities.
Our Remember Together group sessions are designed for people aged 50 and over with mild to moderate dementia and involve a range of fun and interactive activities such as games, music, art, cooking and exercise classes. As well as helping with memory and mental activity, such as thoughts, emotions and behaviour, the sessions also give older people the chance to meet and socialise with people who are also living with dementia.
The sessions are also known as Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy or MCST. This is the only non-drug treatment recommended to improve memory and thought processes, independence and well-being by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
The sessions will take place every Wednesday morning at the Young Dementia Leeds Hub (Cottingley) and every Thursday afternoon at Garforth NET (Garforth). They are available for older people with mild to moderate memory problems or dementia.
