Healthy Friendships - Friends Together Memory and Respite Group (Ludlow)

Description:

Healthy Friendships is a registered Mental Health Charity providing various services throughout South Shropshire. “Encouraging people who endure emotional and mental distress to live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives”

Friends Together is a memory and respite group giving those with dementia and their carers a supportive and informal environment in which to meet new people and try new activities. Carers are welcome to stay and participate in the groups or take a couple of hours respite.

Groups are led by fully trained staff and supported by volunteers. Activities include but are not limited to seated sports, music, relaxation, reminiscence, cognitive stimulation and arts and crafts, guest speakers, lunch clubs and occasional social outings.

Groups run weekly in various locations across South Shropshire.

Ludlow sessions take place every Tuesday morning - £2 per session (includes carer).

Please note that membership is by referral only to Elaine Milton on 07549 318477.

Their ‘Friends Together’ Memory Groups are part of the “People Together” project which is funded by the “Big Lottery England”.
