Dementia Day Break ClubDementia Day Break Centre Ashford
What does it do?
Age UK Ashford offers the Dementia Day Break Service for those living with Dementia and providing respite from caring duties for their loved ones.
Our new Dementia Day Break club for those living with mild to moderate dementia. The club is modelled on Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST). it involves actively stimulating and engaging people whilst in a group setting, to improve their memories. According to dementia & psychology specialists at University College London, the effects of people being treated with CST appear to be comparable with those treated with anti-dementia drugs.
The service runs from 10am to 3pm every weekday.
Whilst the day is focused around providing CST for clients, it can also provide respite for friends and family and can make caring responsibilities easier to manage.
A two course lunch and a tea or coffee are provided are all included in the cost of the day.
