The Warden's Trust Centre in Sizewell, supported by Age UK Suffolk, also hold regular music/singing sessions each month.
We are offering a new service for anyone affected by Dementia who would enjoy a reminiscence session in their home.
The 1-2 hour session will be tailor made around the person over a 6-8 week period. This activity can tap into the person's past focusing on good memories , encouraging verbal communication, and in turn can improve the individuals wellbeing, and the acceptance of outside help in a non-intrusive way.
Each referral will be assessed for suitability for the service . The service is chargeable and is being piloted in the Suffolk Coastal and Mid-Suffolk area.
For more information contact us on 01473 351234 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
All of our Advisors and our Information Help Desks are able to provide assistance and free information guides to people with dementia and their families.
