On Saturday 9th December, the Saturday Club hosted their Christmas Party for people with mild to moderate Dementia. The group enjoyed an afternoon singing along to Christmas songs with local singer/guitarist, Joel Frank.
Over the Summer, the garden at the social club has had lots of changing colours and our service users have enjoyed wandering around the gardens trying to identify the names of plants, trees, mushrooms, berries and vegetable planters. This has proved a great way of opening up conversations about how we have utilised these items in our lives over the years. Our service users from the Saturday Club, started talking about childhood memories, the lovely smell of Apple & BlackBerry crumble cooking in the oven, to helping the family to grow veg and pick it for their tea. We have a wonderful group of around 10 to 14 people on a Saturday with lots of laughs along the way. We have taken some photographs, of our service users enjoying the sunshine and having fun. A few dandelions were picked and wishes made, it was such a lovely way to engage in conversation of past and present topics.
