New group for people living with dementia and their carers every Thursday

We are delighted that with the support of Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group we will now be able to run a new group supporting 15 Lewisham residents with dementia, and their accompanying family carer.

Sessions run every Thursday between 1pm-3pm at Age Exchange. Age Exchange professionals with experience of working for many years in dementia care will run the sessions. These will include a wide range of activity including: thematic reminiscence activity, music and movement, arts and craft, baking, tea and cake…and when the weather picks up; trips out.

Activity is designed to enhance well -being and positive and enjoyable interaction for all participants.
