11 Apr

wow

As we get older it is important to remain as active as possible, not only to keep in physical shape, but it has been proven that exercising and socialising with others is key to improving mental health.

In an attempt to combat social isolation across Sheffield, Home Instead have put together a What’s On Where Guide which provides a list of easily accessible activities in Sheffield such as; Choir Groups, Dance Classes, Art groups, Lunch Clubs, Coffee Mornings and many more!

Home Instead hope their guide will encourage people to get involved in the community and ultimately, reduce social isolation.

Take a look at the Home Instead WOW guide using the link below!

Its all fun and memories at the 1940’s themed dementia café in Stocksbridge as volunteers turn out in their best 1940’s dress to encourage the flowing memories of the people that use the service.

Stocksbridge dementia café offer a free drop in service for anyone who has concerns about their memory or the memory of a loved one or friend.

The Dementia Café serves the North of Sheffield and provides an opportunity for participants to meet regularly with other people with memory problems and their carers and presents a chance to exchange experiences and to give and receive emotional support. The café is run by trained volunteers with additional support from The Alzheimer’s Society Sheffield.

Anyone can come along and discuss their concerns in confidence. We look to provide support and information within a relaxed, friendly and stigma free environment.

Everyone is welcome and no pre-booking is required.

Sheffield Alzheimer’s Society, Sheffield Dementia Action Alliance, Stocksbridge Community Care Group Ltd and The Venue Stocksbridge have long recognised the much needed facility of a Dementia Cafe in the North Sheffield Area of the City
