We are pleased to announce our brand new Activity Groups in Witham are due to open in May. Based on what Carers have told us is needed, this provision will be for people with mild to moderate dementia who can attend alone. Two groups will be held during the day - the morning will have a ‘Keeping Active’ Group session and the afternoon will have an ‘Active Minds’ Group session. Clients can choose to attend one or both groups. The focus of the Activity Groups will be based around physical activities and cognitive stimulation, both of which are proven to be beneficial for people with dementia and memory problems.

We welcome volunteers from the community to come and help with the Activity Groups.

If you would like to know more about this provision, please call Lisa Whiteley on 0300 770 8090 or email lisa.whiteley@affc.org.uk.
