Age UK Somerset offers support for those living with dementia in Somerset and North Somerset - and their families, friends and carers - through our Memory Connections groups and our Dementia Awareness workshops.
We run 'Memory Connections' groups across Somerset and North Somerset.
These friendly and fun sessions use MCST (Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy) which has been proven to slow the progression of Dementia.
At each weekly group session, members enjoy a range of activities providing stimulation to improve thinking, concentration and memory.
Would you like to have a better understanding of Dementia?
Our Workshop will improve your knowledge and give advice on how to handle difficult situations that can arise when caring for a person living with dementia.
These workshops take place across our area and are suitable for individuals, or we can arrange to deliver a tailored workshop at your organisation's location.
