 “Big wheels keep on turning” for the Activity organisers Training day success.

We have been sucessfully delivering our well attended training day's in Leeds, Nottingham, Bournemouth  and Hastings  so far, this year.

We have had some fantastic feedback from our attendees who took part in the activities training day. Click on our link to view some of our YouTube videos from the day.  

Following our training days we have set up a Facebook group page for activity organisers @:    UK activities forum group


The Purpose of Meaningful Activities Training Day 

This event is aimed to provide the following:


·        To develop individual needs to enhance performance.

·        An insight into what the experience of dementia may be like.

·        A basic understanding of dementia as a range of different conditions.

·        A basic understanding of how dementia may affect a person’s behaviour and ability to communicate, and the impact that this may have on others.

·        To enable you to provide quality activities to you residents


·        Demonstrate increased knowledge and awareness of Dementia.

Key learning points

The challenge is to not deliver activities based solely on assumptions and stereotypes but to focus on individual needs and abilities.
