Memory Club
for
those living with early–mid stage dementia

held twice a month at
The Brooklands Centre in Newport Pagnell

 

Memory Club (from 8th October 2020)

The Newport Pagnell Memory Club has restarted
at the Brooklands Centre, deemed a Covid-secure venue
with lots of safety precautions in place.
Carers have to attend as part of the safety measures. 

 

  • The Parish Church sponsors the Memory Club which is for people who’ve been diagnosed with dementia or who have symptoms of cognitive impairment. CTNP is very much in support of this initiative in our community

  • The Memory Club has proved very popular with people with dementia, and is now in its fifth year of operation

  • This club is for people who have dementia themselves;

    it is not a Carer's group, although one of those also runs at the Brooklands Centre on alternate Fridays;


  • We recognise the importance of a supportive and caring community to men and women living with dementia whether it’s Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia or any of the other less well known forms of dementia.

  • Our target audience is those living in their own homes and managing with only intermittent support.

  • Be referred
    • through the community matron at Newport Pagnell Health Centre
    • via your GP, or

  • The memory club meets on the second and fourth Thursday afternoons each month, from 2-4pm, at Brooklands Centre, Newport Pagnell (see Brooklands.) For specific dates of up-coming meetings, see the list at Forthcoming Events

  • The club offers memory assistance techniques and group activities to build enjoyment and confidence and hopes to help keep each member as an active resident of the community for as long as possible. Refreshments will be served. A donation of £2 is requested to cover running costs
