What’s happening at Orchard House in November?

As our partnership with Dementia Forward continues to grow, we’ve got two new activities lined up this month.

On Tuesday 14th November we’ll be hosting the first Memory Support Session at Orchard House with Lisa, a memory support advisor from Dementia Forward. These sessions will be held every second Tuesday at Orchard House and are a chance for anyone who is concerned about their own memory or a loved one’s to sit down with Lisa and have a confidential chat. Lisa will then be able to signpost you to the appropriate services.

Contact Lisa to find out more: 07519375394

And on Thursday 23rd November we’re running a consultation evening to launch our new weekly sessions for people with Young Onset Dementia. These weekly sessions will be called THRIVE, we’ve developed them specifically for those with young onset dementia because we know that age-appropriate services for dementia care, support and social events are lacking in many areas. We hope that THRIVE will become a social hub where you can socialise, stay mentally and physically active, find a network of supportive people to share ideas and experiences with, enjoy activities led by you, enjoy a meal, and have access to Dementia Forward support workers.

Come along to the consultation evening on 23rd November from 4 pm to 7:30 pm to learn more about our proposed activities and to let us know what you would like to see from a THRIVE session. Light refreshments will be served, we look forward to seeing you soon!
