Activities for older people

By offering additional and innovative opportunities, we can help people that are living with dementia to enjoy new experiences and continue to be mentally, socially and physically active.

We have worked with Age UK Bolton, Bolton Carers Support and Bolton Dementia Support.

With early intervention, people can retain their independence, maintain their physical, mental and emotional well-being and in turn delay or prevent their need for day care and or costly (re)admission to hospital or residential care.

A feeling of belonging and being fulfilled alongside others is incredibly important regardless of age and significantly improves the impact of memory loss long-term health conditions.
