Alzheimer's Society - Friendly support groups in Gloucestershire: May to August 2019

(Published on 02/05/2019)

Memory Café groups are for people affected by dementia, or have

memory-related concerns. Friendly Alzheimer’s Society staff and

volunteers are on hand to provide informal support. Drop in to share

information and experiences with others in a similar situation, or simply

have a drink and a chat in a relaxed setting.

 

Singing for the Brain® groups are for people with a confirmed

dementia diagnosis, and use music and song to bring people together

in a friendly environment. It is a way for people with dementia to

express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive

setting. A friend or loved one is welcome to attend, and no previous

singing experience is necessary!

 

They also offer specialist support groups for people:

• with a dementia who are younger (diagnosed under the age of 65)

• with a loved-one in permanent residential care

• with an interest in art
