Dementia Support East Sussex

Description

Dementia Support East Sussex provides relaxed, safe, dementia-centred activities in a social setting with group singing, stimulating activities, reminisce and friendship-building at its core.
 
A weekly club has been formed in Bexhill, monthly clubs in Horam, Lewes and Sidley, and in Heathfield and Ditchling, two clubs in each, monthly.
 

Singing Music and Friendship Club

Singing has proved beneficial and rewarding for many, where music memory is often spared the ravages of the brain through dementia.
 
We have two profession tutors who offer a structured and engaging programme, including breathing, vocal and gentle muscle exercises.
 
All sessions are free of charge:
 
Every Saturday, 10am - 12.00 alternating between Southlands Place, Bexhill and Milton Grange, Eastbourne
 

Mid-week meetings

We are running clubs at 26 locations across the region - see the attached document or contact us for details.
 

Crafty Club

We have a 'Crafty Club' designed to re-ignite those lost skills of knitting, sewing and creative artwork. And through this we support Baby Basics who provide new born baby essentials to help the most vulnerable.
 

Dementia Support East Sussex is a ‘not for profit’, free membership, voluntary initiative, aiming to address the gaps in the existing provision of care for those touched by dementia, and respite for their carers.
