Age UK Sheffield Wellbeing Centre

Summary
Social activities for people over 50 living with dementia which provides respite for their carers


Description

At the Age UK Sheffield Wellbeing Centre, we believe that memory loss shouldn’t be a barrier to fun, friendship and stimulation for the mind. We’re passionate about creating a safe, loving and welcoming environment for our members. We sing. We dance. We play. We make things. And above all else, we laugh. The Wellbeing Centre is like nowhere else. After all, we designed it as a place that we’d want to go to. Whether it’s Mexican week, or the visits by therapy pony Leo, painting, or an archery competition, we always make fun happen.

We don’t just have fun though. We use a technique called Cognitive Stimulation Therapy to ensure that all of our members live well with memory loss and dementia. What’s that?

Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) is an increasingly popular and effective way to treat the symptoms of mild to moderate dementia. It’s also really enjoyable, featuring themed activities delivered over a number of weeks by a trained professional. Each session covers a different topic and is designed to improve the mental abilities and memory of participants. Evidence so far suggests that this form of therapy could be just as beneficial as drug treatments for the symptoms of dementia. And we know that when our loved ones are happier, we’re happier.
