People with dementia and their carers often feel isolated within their communities and struggle to cope. Safe Haven Dementia Centre will be able to offer them a welcome respite from their equally difficult situations.
At Safe Haven, each client will be fully assessed in person, and a detailed care plan will be created to make sure that the environment and care is suitable for their needs.
Safe Haven prides itself on its home-from-home and cosy atmosphere, and is an ideal venue for people with all levels of dementia to socialise and be themselves with like-minded people. Not everyone with dementia likes to participate in activities, so the centre is also a place to make friends and interact with others.
Dementia UK is the only specialist dementia nursing charity that is there for the whole family, working towards a day when no one has to face dementia alone. Our specialist nurses, known as Admiral Nurses, provide life-changing advice and support, to anyone affected by dementia, whenever it is needed.
Our work aims to enable people living with dementia to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community, and keep a sense of adventure in their lives – whatever ‘adventure’ may mean to the individual.
We are a charity working to help all those affected by young onset dementia.
ith over 200 people benefiting from Accompanied Walks so far, our community outreach project is now firmly embedded as part of the Museum’s wellbeing offer.
The project provides an opportunity for members of the community who have little or no opportunity, or need some encouragement and support, to venture outdoors or interact with other people.
By spending an hour or so in the beautiful surroundings of the Museum, in the company of a friendly and knowledgeable volunteer, learning about our unique collection of heritage buildings and rare breed farm animals, Accompanied Walkers benefit from:
• A dose of ‘Vitamin green’ from being outdoors in a rural setting.
• The security of being in a supervised setting (as opposed to a public park) with toilets.
• A social interaction.
• The knock-on wellbeing benefits associated with the above, such as an increase in confidence, a greater ability to manage existing health conditions, and a diversion from negative thoughts.
• And most likely, pure enjoyment!
Lindengate is a multi-award winning Nature based Health and Wellbeing Charity based in Wendover, Bucks, at the foot of the Chiltern Hills. Since 2014, and with the support of over 200 volunteers, Lindengate has transformed from a disused allotment site with 2 metre high nettles, to a unique 6 acre secret garden with a Nature Reserve, Ponds, Heritage Orchard, Kitchen Garden and Sensory Garden with sculptures and heritage-based art hidden across the site.
Lindengate@Home (#lindengate@home) is for everyone who might be struggling with their wellbeing and isolation. Our normal structure and balance in life has been seriously disrupted and many of us are having to deal with life changing circumstances in so many different areas.
Memory Pathways is for anyone living with memory loss, or mild to moderate dementia and their carers. The sessions run between 10.30 and 12.30 on the first, third and last Fridays of the month. The group provides the opportunity to meet up with people in similar situations to enjoy nature based activities, make new friends, have a relaxing and stimulating time and get support.
At each session, there are seasonal nature based activities, arts and crafts, singing, reminiscing, poetry and more. Please email Referrals@lindengate.org.uk for initial enquiries.
The group provides the option for carers to discuss issues and share experiences
in a safe and supportive environment facilitated by a Dementia Adviser. Brief

the group each month.

Our Keep Moving Forward Wellbeing Walk gives participants the opportunity to meet a friendly group of people who are all on a recovery journey. The walk helps to keep people active whilst walking and talking with people who can support them. It is a very relaxed environment and we even stop for a cup of tea on the way around.
The Wellbeing Walk takes place every Tuesday from 11:00am – 1:00 pm and begins at the Wycombe Lido, just by the car park a little way up from the tennis courts.
There is no need to book on to the walks, you can simply turn up on the day, and there is no cost to take part.
At Chiltern we can provide Music Therapy, Neurologic Music Therapy and Community Music services both digitally and in person across England.
We work with people of all ages and needs. We work with people in acute, targeted, rehabilitative and continuing and preventative care.
