Age UK Plymouth and Ocean Conservation Trust, the organisation that runs National Marine Aquarium have partnered up to further their commitment to creating a dementia friendly community in the City of Plymouth.

Quiet at the Aquarium has been a staple of the National Marine Aquarium’s calendar and now a special dementia friendly session Ocean Memories is due to take place on World Alzheimer’s Day Wednesday 21st September, during World Alzeimer’s Month.

Visitors will be able to explore all of the exhibits without the normal daytime crowds, a more relaxed lighting, screens turned off and no daily shows, so the focus is truly on our amazing animals.
