Why Team Up with Memory Matters?
Memory Matters is an award winning and well-respected organisation, founded in 2010 by two qualified nurses, Kate and Laura who champion the importance of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST). “CST should be available to everyone living with mild to moderate dementia in all communities.” (National Institute of Health and Care Excellence). Despite this, access to CST is sporadic.
In many areas, people with dementia have access to a short course provided by the NHS, however, these are time limited. Therefore, they are stopped whilst people would still feel the benefit from attending. Those that live in residential or care homes often have no access at all.
We are inviting well established organisations in the community to come on board and work with us to ensure all people living with mild to moderate dementia can access these groups.
