those living with early–mid stage dementia
held twice a month at
The Brooklands Centre in Newport Pagnell
Memory Club (from 8th October 2020)
The Newport Pagnell Memory Club has restarted
at the Brooklands Centre, deemed a Covid-secure venue
with lots of safety precautions in place.
Carers have to attend as part of the safety measures.
See below for a small change in meeting times whilst Covid-19 conditions apply
The Parish Church sponsors the Memory Club which is for people who’ve been diagnosed with dementia or who have symptoms of cognitive impairment. CTNP is very much in support of this initiative in our community
The Memory Club has proved very popular with people with dementia, and is now in its fifth year of operation
We recognise the importance of a supportive and caring community to men and women living with dementia whether it’s Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia or any of the other less well known forms of dementia.
Our target audience is those living in their own homes and managing with only intermittent support.

The memory club meets on the second and fourth Thursday afternoons each month, normally from 2-4pm (but see following for Covid-19 change), at Brooklands Centre, Newport Pagnell (see Brooklands.) For specific dates of up-coming meetings, see the list at Forthcoming Events
This club is for people who have dementia themselves;
it is not a Carer's group, although one of those also runs at the Brooklands Centre on alternate Fridays;
Meeting times are changed, (temporarily because of Covid-19)
Whilst these conditions apply, the Club will meet 2.30–3.45pm for members and carers. Carers are expected to stay with the person they support, sitting together in their 'domestic bubble' and 2metres separate from others. Arrive 2.20–2.30pm if at all possible. We ask members and carers to bring a pen each, wear face-masks. We take temperatures upon arrival, and make plentiful use of hand sanitiser
The club offers memory assistance techniques and group activities to build enjoyment and confidence and hopes to help keep each member as an active resident of the community for as long as possible. Refreshments will be served. A donation of £2 is requested to cover running costs
Volunteers run sessions & activities, support members, provide refreshments....men as well as ladies please. References will be taken up and DBS (formerly CRB) checks made. Training includes information about dementia, safeguarding, health & safety.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Hazel Reynolds on 07518412389 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
