Memory Lane Dementia Day Service
The Memory Lane Dementia Day Service in Boston offers a safe and peaceful environment where people with dementia can enjoy a range of activities to improve health and wellbeing. These include creative, educational, memory and cognition activities, music therapy and gentle exercise, all of which provide social contact and help people to improve self-esteem, retain and even regain important skills and realise their potential.
Activities can be personalised according to interests, previous occupation and pursuits and current cognitive function and abilities. At the same time, the Service provides carers and their families some respite from the constant demands of caring.
Small groups of up to 15 customers are staffed by trained support workers from Lincolnshire Housing Partnership and Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire, with some help from trained volunteers. The Service also offers nutritious meals and snacks, medication reminders, access to information and mental health training, and signposting to other support services, all within a protective and caring environment.
Memory Lane is held every Thursday at Mayfields Extra Care Scheme, Broadgate Lane, Boston, PE21 8GH owned and managed by Boston Mayflower.
It provides full and half day options, and shorter sessions and taster days by arrangement. To find out more, please call 0300 365 5000.
