Living Well Activities
We enable people to access a range of dementia-friendly activities such as golf, music therapy, singing groups, walking groups, reading clubs and art therapy. Some activities are supported directly by Dementia Wellington and are ongoing, while others run for a few weeks or are independent of us. Have a chat with your Dementia Advisor about any ideas and options that may suit you.
