Music, Movement and Dance for Dementia

From 11.15am to 12.15pm, Lewisham MindCare will be running a Dancing to Live Well with Dementia group. The professional-led, gentle music, movement and dance session helps people with dementia and their carers to stay active and give carers the opportunity to do something create new experiences and memories with the person they care for.

For Dementia Awareness Week 2017, the Dancing to Live Well with Dementia group will be open to any visitors from the general public as well as people with dementia and their carers.

Become a Dementia Friend in Lewisham

From 12.30pm to 1.15pm, there will be a free Dementia Friends session where anyone can learn more about dementia and the simple everyday things they can do to make Lewisham a dementia friendly community and make a difference to the life of someone living with dementia.

Free tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be available to everyone in between the dance and Dementia Friends session. There is no need to book in advance, just turn up on the day.
