How Our Weekly Activities Help People Suffering with Memory Loss Due To Dementia


Activities that challenge the mind can help slow the progression of dementia and improve cognitive function. In addition, this can provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment, which is important for our residents with dementia. This gives the chance for our residents to have a social life with their friends in the lodge and encourages family members to come and join in.

Activities to try 

Keeping them physical

If it’s gardening, dancing, or walking, we always encourage our residents to keep fit! In addtion, physical activities also help to improve mood and reduce the risk of depression. When residents are involved in any form of physical activity e.g. armchair exercises, there is always a member of staff to assist them and give them support. 

Explore their creativity

Our residents love to get creative, whether that’s through painting or drawing, our amazing staff work with the residents to provide them the best activities to suit them. This can provide an outlet for self-expression and a way to communicate for those who can no longer communicate with words. 

Socialising activities

If it’s group outings, game nights, or pet therapy, these help to reduce isolation and promote social interaction in our Lodges. They also provide an opportunity for our residents to form new friendships and feel at home.

Overall, activities in care homes can be a valuable tool for improving the quality of life for people with dementia. It can help combat the negative effects of dementia and improve overall well-being by providing mental stimulation, a sense of purpose, and socialisation opportunities.
