Activities at Sage House
Dementia Support offer a variety of activities at Sage House
The benefit of therapeutic and cognitive activities such as art, socialising and reminiscing for people living with dementia is well documented. In fact, everyone can benefit from these activities, so we invite carers and families to take part too.
We run a range of activities at Sage House in Tangmere. There are small charges to attend which go towards supporting the activity and the charity. We also ask that people book to avoid disappointment, and that a carer or family member accompany the attendee.
Call our Sage House Reception on 01243 888 691 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to book.
Our sessions will explore a variety of mediums, to include still life drawing and painting. Themes will be changed week on week with talking point objects designed to aid reminiscence. All abilities are very welcome.
