Lunch Breaks is for carers and the person they care for (who is living with dementia), where they can enjoy a relaxing time doing recreational activities together with the company of others.
One of the goals is to help reduce a sense of isolation through peer support, as well as through simple enjoyment of the activities and interaction.
The group shares a hot lunch together followed by a varied programme of activities including multisensory sessions involving poetry, singing, period objects, and more.
Lunch Breaks meets on Fridays from 1:00pm - 3:30pm.
