Dementia Adventure has a vision of society in which people live well with dementia, have contact and connection with nature, and enjoy a sense of adventure. A society where people enjoy a full range of activities, have strong relationships with people in their communities and have access to places connected to their interests, passions and dreams.
To enable people living with dementia to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community, and retain a sense of adventure in their lives.
Values and Aims
We believe in thinking differently about dementia, hence the name Dementia Adventure. Our positive focus is on the individual and not on the illness. We look at what people can do, not what they can’t. We concentrate on ‘the possible’. It is our belief that people can thrive and live better with dementia when they remain connected to nature and enjoy a sense of adventure in their lives.
Physical, mental or creative activity is fundamentally part of ‘living well with dementia’. We aim to develop a solid evidence base for our work, grounded in research.
Enabling people living with dementia to have real choice and the control to take positive risks in their lives. We support people with dementia to inform and guide our work.
With nature, people and places, our interests, passions and dreams. We are working to develop a scalable model of our Dementia Adventures for all people living with dementia, so they can access an adventure regardless of how small or large.
