Umberslade Nurseries launches community workshops for people with Dementia
01 June 2016
Umberslade Nurseries recently secured funding from the Zurich Community Trust to run craft and gardening sessions for people with Dementia, along with their carers.
The project kicked off in April with a Dementia Friends session, which aims to raise awareness about dementia in the local community. The first group workshop was attended by both in-patients from local hospitals and local residents, all of whom live with dementia on a daily basis.
Going forward, sessions will include decorating ‘herb pots’ for use in the kitchen, growing vegetables and other plant and flower related mini projects. More importantly, everyone who comes along also gets to sit with each other and enjoy some social chat time over tea and cake.
