Thanks to funding by the Big Lottery Awards For All Grant, Enfield Carers Centre is working with Don’t Tone Alone (DTA) to run our four Active Ageing Workshops.

Carers and their loved ones with Dementia will work together in pairs to learn techniques, exercises and tips that will help you:
• find enjoyable ways of communicating
• enjoy fun activities that make the most of their existing memory/abilities
• learn gentle fitness exercises using everyday routines that you can do at home.

All sessions are 10:30am – 12:30pm on 4 consecutive Thursdays.

The workshops will cover the following topics:

Workshop 1

8th Aug 2019

Making the everyday fun – Considering therapeutic opportunities in everyday life -reframing daily tasks to make them more enjoyable and at what each of us can do rather than what we can’t
Workshop 2

15th August 2019

Exercise for two – Prepare to have a laugh as we go through a range of paired exercises which involve sitting, standing, throwing, and catching. You will be amazed at what you can do.
Workshop 3

22nd August 2019

Exercise for the mind – activities for the brain and what provides the most helpful mental stimulus graded for different abilities to explore what’s most enjoyable and beneficial.
Workshop 4

29th August 2019

Memory and coordination – simple exercises that are used to improve memory and coordination. Participants can expect activities ranging from story telling to catching exercises.
