Meet our members: Leominster Meeting Centre
Leominster Meeting Centre opened in February 2016 as part of a European research project into effective community-based support for people affected by dementia. Based in Leominster, the Centre provides a safe place where people are supported to understand and adapt to living with dementia by offering exercise, educational sessions, one-to-one meetings with support workers and advisers, as well as therapeutic activities Monday-Friday.
The Meeting Centre offers so much practical support and activities to families including:
· Assistance and support with practical, emotional and social issues
· A stimulating, motivating, caring, and fun environment
· Regular one-to-one advice and support
As a founding member of the Leominster Cultural Consortium, the Centre’s Team are keen to involve families affected by dementia in the cultural programme of events planned for our town. All the work done at the Meeting Centre has people with dementia at its heart and sessions are built around the hobbies and interests of the people who attend. That means there is regular singing, reminiscence, music and dance, poetry, cooking, games, visiting local areas, walking, shopping and sitting down for a cup of tea and a chat.
Leominster Meeting Centre is part of the UK Meeting Centre Support Programme, established by the Association for Dementia Studies, University of Worcester.
