A Packed programme for people with dementia

(as reported by Exmouth Journal 17 February 2011)

An exciting programme of community events are planned by Rose Lodge, East Devon’s dementia care specialists. To pick just a few of the many events on offer in the next few months:

In March, some of the residents will be on stage at the Blackmore Theatre, performing for family and friends under the guidance of Mazlen George of the First Stage Drama School, who runs a popular weekly drama club at Rose Lodge. At Easter, residents and staff will do a sponsored 5 mile run along the beach front.

In June Rose Lodge will host it’s very popular garden party and open day, and throughout the season children from the Beacon School will be growing vegetables with the residents at Rose Lodge. The very successful Artist In Residence week and art exhibition will also be held again this year.

“Being engaged with our community is a really important part of our work at Rose Lodge. Not only do our residents really enjoy these events but we also think it is important that we work to reduce some of the misconceptions associated with dementia” says Karen Bousher, manager at Rose Lodge.
