What We Do
- Leominster Meeting Centre is about helping people and their families adjust to living with dementia by offering exercise, educational sessions, one-to-one meetings with support workers and advisers, as well as therapeutic activities and having FUN!
- The Centre provides a safe place where people are supported to understand and adapt to living with memory problems. All sessions are built around the hobbies and interests of the people who attend and everyone is fully involved in shaping what happens in and around the centre.
- The programme of activities is member led and informed and is aimed at addressing members’ emotional, cognitive and social needs and supports people to adjust to their changing needs.
- Examples of activities taking place at the Meeting Centre include art with Kate (screen printing); visit by hairdresser, animals in winter, movement and co-ordination session; Sleeping Beauty at the Courtyard, Joe Cocker talk about butterflies, blow your own trumpet with Sue and karaoke with Andy. Activities are inclusive and suitable for anyone and everyone!
- The Centre is a national demonstrator site in the Association for Dementia Studies (University of Worcester) UK Meeting Centres Support Programme project.
