Join in on Thursday as we welcome back the Virtual Dementia Bus that provides hands-on training to staff and creates a simulation of what it might be like to live with dementia. To conclude our Dementia Awareness Week, we will be hosting a coffee morning to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, bringing people from the community together with cakes made by our residents and the staff.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01865 950500 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
