Dementia Support Groups

Fun group activities to provide mutual support and encourage social interaction.

Group activities are carefully designed for: cognitive stimulation (recall and developing new skills), fun and social interaction.

Staff will draw upon a wide range of activities appropriate to members’ interests and abilities and incorporate opportunities for discussion to encourage reminiscing; sharing life experiences and stories from the past.

Usually, a person with dementia can recall things from their past rather than more recent memories, so reminiscence draws on this. Members of the group benefit from socializing with other people with dementia and through mutual support.

Transport for our Dementia support group is provided by North Coast Community Transport who pick up clients from their homes and leave them back again.

Addressing loneliness and promoting emotional welbeing.

This project is for people over the age of 55, we have seen a high rise in the number of older people reporting that they are lonely. Some older people are still scared to come out of the house after COVID or have lost confidence in going out.

The project aims to promote mental and emotional wellbeing in older people who are isolated and vulnerable. Emotional loneliness when someone you were close to is no longer there, a partner or close friend, chronic loneliness when you feel lonely all or most of the time.

This is just some of the types of loneliness that older people experience, at Age Concern Causeway we get call all the time from older people who are just lonely and want to get back out again but don’t know where to go. This has a massive impact on their mental health and physical health we want to give people the opportunity and help to get back out again meeting people. Helping themselves to feel more independent and confident.

Loneliness can affect people when they retire or suffer a bereavement this group will encourage social connection, learning a new skill and taking time for themselves.
