A new sporting reminiscence group for people with dementia and their carers is being launched in Ringwood.

The group, which will be run by the Alzheimer’s Society, is being funded by New Forest District Council and the New Forest Health and Wellbeing Board.

The group is open to anyone with a diagnosis of dementia and their partners or carers. Sessions are informal and can accommodate six to eight people with dementia who will engage in remembering activities, based on the use of props, activity cards, memory books and other materials.

The group is held on the second and fourth Monday of the month from 10.30am - noon at Trinity Centre, Christchurch Road, Ringwood, BH24 1DH.

For more information contact Richard Tuck, sports group coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Society, on 01590 644679 or richard.tuck@altzheimers.org.uk.
