If our beneficiaries haven't convinced you already Here's some more reasons why coming to a club is a good idea if you have mild to moderate dementia:
Our Clubs enable you to access to Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) for 24 WEEKS.
CST has been proven in clinical trials to be as effective as anti-dementia drugs. CST has been shown to slow the progress of dementia and is recommended by the National Institute of Health and Clinical excellence (NICE).
It's Therapeutic and Fun!
The Memory Matters programme is lots of fun even for those who don't feel they have much to smile about! Our groups laugh- A LOT!
But better than that hidden between the laughter and the fun is lots of thinking, conversation creative work and word-finding. All helps to stimulate the brain cells and gain confidence again.

People with mild to moderate dementia who are independent with their self care needs.
