Long day respite designed for people living with memory loss or dementia. Accessing support early can help improve symptoms and slow down progression.
Participants meet up in a social environment and have a daily program based on Montessori principles that focuses on maintaining and improving their current skills and capabilities.
The program includes a daily exercise program led by a qualified fitness instructor, Monday singing/music class, Tuesday Mosaics class and Wednesday art class, Thursday shed projects/ restoring furniture – all led by qualified teachers.
The program is reviewed every 10 weeks by an Occupational Therapist and Group Planner to ensure it continues to best support participants.
A nutritional lunch designed in consultation with a dietitian is provided daily, as well as a light morning and afternoon tea.
