Holidays 2017

People living with dementia can often feel that things like holidays and travel are no longer available to them, but we specialise in creating small group holidays for people living with dementia, their partners, family, friends or carer to enjoy together.

The Dementia Adventure Trust supports people living with dementia and their carers by underwriting the cost of our holidays and breaks to make them as affordable as possible. We don't want cost to be a reason for people not to have a holiday. Click here to read our guide to financial assistance which looks at additional ways of getting some assistance to help make your dementia adventure happen.

Read more about our holidays below. You can download our full price list here and our brochure here. Please refer to our terms and conditions - Group Holidays T&C  and for Bespoke Holidays T&C.
