Fine & Dandy Memory Workshops
Specialises in activities for older people living with dementia in Lancashire.
Our services for care homes, day centres, memory cafes and retirement villages fall into two types:
- Small groups often in closed sessions. Here, in addition to core activities such as sing-a-long musical entertainment, depending on mental capacity we may stretch the group further through foreign languages, two-part singing and rounds
- Larger groups of mixed mental capacity with a more general programme tailored to interests and with the aim to raise the mood.
Generally a session has themed topics such as family, holidays and the seasons and you get the opportunity to select the type and decade of music you’d prefer. We are confident we can put together the programme you are looking for.
We can also create personalised themes that could work around pre and post visits, so extra value is gained from our presence.
Our themed sessions work from a central core, branching out to multiple stimulation activities.
New customers are invited to complete a questionnaire form, which really gives us an indication of what would make a Fine & Dandy Memory Workshops visit enjoyable.
