In order to do our part we've decided to open up various activities and events at our Day Centre for the public to attend, so that you can get a first hand experience of the kind of support we provide to those suffering from dementia.

Here's an idea of what we have planned:

Monday 20th we'll be going through some of the chair based exercises we do to help keep dementia sufferers active and healthy from 10.30 - 12.30

Tuesday 21st we will be hosting an arts and crafts session to show you how we try to keep the creativity alive in the people we care for from 10.30 - 12.30

There will also be a trip out to Grainger Market to help support others raising awareness during Dementia Awareness Week from 13.00 - 14.30

Wednesday 22nd Newcastle Active will be joining us for a few games of table tennis from 10.45 - 11.45

Thursday 23rd we will be showing you one of our main attractions, the magic table, which provides so much entertainment in the form of stimulating brain games for our service users. This will be from 10.30 - 11.30

There will also be another trip to Grainger market from 13.00 - 14.30

Friday 24th we will be closing the week off with a bit of knit and natter for a wholesome end to our busy week! this will be from 10.30 - 12.30
