Dementia Adventure (DA) have been working with the Abbeyfield Society, enabling them to create Abbeyfield’s award-winning ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ programme. The successful partnership between Abbeyfield and DA looks set to continue for some time to come, enabling people living with dementia to connect to the outdoors for their well-being.
In 2016 Dementia Adventure were invited to deliver training to the Methodist Homes (MHA) ‘Live at Home Scheme’ in Horsforth, West Yorkshire. The training was funded by the Big Lottery’s ‘Time to Shine’ fund who’s aim is ‘Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better’. The training introduced dementia awareness with an emphasis on sensory perception and benefits of connection with nature, and it included an introduction to planning & leading dementia inclusive walks and other activities.
Dementia Adventure is delighted to have attended the 2017 People’s Postcode Lottery annual Charity Gala where it was announced that £66.3 million was awarded to charities and good causes in 2016 - thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery. We are one of 69 charities that benefitted from this incredible funding.
