Activities for people with dementia should be meaningful. What that means is that the activity should be something the person enjoys doing , is adult appropriate and raises confidence. Activities can be therapeutic, relaxing and physical. On the other hand it could just be having a cup of tea and a chat! https://www.mindfulgifts.co.uk/activities
Since the closure of our Mindful Gifts CIC shop we have been reshaping how we deliver our services for people with dementia . We have invested in updating our website and making sure the customer service we deliver is 100%. We are also engaging with the community by outreach so look out for where we will be by checking our website or Facebook page @mindfulgiftscic . This will include having stands and stalls in markets, shows, events and care settings. We are very excited on building on what we have achieved the last 7 years and developing more much needed products and services for you, and working alongside our expert partners.
