We know from our own experience that as dementia progresses it can be really hard to find the time to stay connected to your community, and that it’s really important for your wellbeing to socialise with others. That’s why we host weekly social events and also work with other organisations to promote their dementia friendly events. You can find events taking place in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight on our event calendar.
Our own events
We host events for people living with dementia and their family and friends, so that you can enjoy spending time with your loved ones in a dementia friendly social environment.
It also gives you the opportunity to make new friends with people going through the same experience as you.
From weekly social groups to afternoon teas, and Christmas parties – check out our event calendar for events near you.
We host a weekly carers catch up on Zoom. A place for you to ask questions, share experiences, develop a support network, and maybe have a laugh too (if we didn’t laugh we’d cry!).
The catch up is held on Zoom every Wednesday morning 10am – 11.30am. You can join for the whole session or you can drop in and out at a time to suit you, based on your morning schedule.
You only need to register once and then you can join every week.
There are lots of dementia friendly events in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight that are hosted by other voluntary groups, charities, and organisations.
We list these events on our event calendar so that you can easily find dementia events taking place near to where you live. Giving you more choice, and the opportunity to continue doing the things you love.
You can find these events on our event calendar and search using your postcode.
We recommend that you contact the event organiser to check the event is running before you attend.
We host a number of fundraising events throughout the year to help raise funds so that we can offer our services to people living with dementia for free.
We would be hugely appreciative if you and/or your family and friends could support us by signing up for an event, organising your own event, or volunteering an an event.
