Do you know someone with memory impairment who would be interested in joining these sessions, with their carer?

We aim to provide a rich learning environment in which individuals are encouraged and inspired to grow in confidence, self-esteem and independence through mastery of achievable tasks in an outdoor setting.

The Archie Project

The Archie Project is an intergenerational dementia awareness project that links primary schools, care homes, sheltered housing schemes, business/services and community members to ultimately create dementia friendly communities.

Carer Support Groups

Weekly Zoom meetings with a member of the 
Reminiscence Learning team and family carers in the community.

Creating a support network.

Discussing difficulties you may be facing, coping strategies, and many other topics.

I am so thankful for the two weekly carers group zoom meetings hosted by Reminiscence Learning. One is a lighthearted get together where we just have fun to take our minds off any worries for a short time. The second is more serious where we can share things that are troubling us in confidence, in a safe, secure place. We seem to have been in lockdown forever, but these friendly carers group meetings are very special and it is so good to have other people to talk too.
