Activity Day Clubs

Where the person comes first

Activity Day Clubs
live well with dementia

When a full day of engaging activity in a  fun, person-centred environment is required our experienced team have it all covered…

Our Activity Day clubs all run in the same way and so wherever you attend you will recognise the structure. Like all our work, they adhere closely to the principles of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy.  So you can be safe in the knowledge that all club members are having a workout for their brains and bodies whilst socialising and having fun.

What Happens at a club?

The Structure:

Arrivals:

welcome, tea/coffee & social time

Gentle warm up:

Orientation discussion, Newspaper discussion, Song & Word warm-up. We have many different word warm ups. They are usually to do with the main topic. eg. thinking of autumn words beginning with a letter picked from a hat.

Main topic:

These are influenced by the key topics used in cognitive stimulation (eg. Physical Games, Sounds, Childhood, Food, Current affairs, Faces/Scenes, Word Association, Being Creative, Categorising Objects, Orientation, Using Money, Number Games, Word Games.) The main topic will often have a seasonal twist to help with orientation and will always use props, mutisensory elements, discussion and an activity to engage in.

Lunch:

Depending on the club this will be either soup and sandwiches at £3.50 to be paid on the day or a hot meal organised by the venue usually £3.50 to be paid on the day also.

Physical Exercise:

All our clubs try to get outside for a walk weather permitting so you will need to make sure you have clothes to wrap up in in the winter and sun cream and hats in the summer!

Afternoon Activity: This is usually more focused on games either physical, word or number games. This is also a time for members to contribute to planning and explore self-help topics or hear visiting speakers.
