Dementia Club UK is a place where people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can attend with their own carers and families. We also welcome those who have lost someone with dementia and are now lonely.
The sessions are free but any donations are always welcome. The 2 hour sessions provide various activities for everyone to participate and enjoy. We do quizzes, singing, brain teaser games, poetry, bingo, drawing and colouring, painting, arts and crafts, table tennis, magnetic darts, putting golf and skittles. The charity has also bought a Tovertafel which is Dutch for Magic Table which is an interactive projected game system that’s great fun for all the family.
We also do some gentle exercises to music; chair yoga and tai chi and we also have musical entertainers. Music is a key pathway to reactivating memories. We sometimes have guest speakers and Dementia Club UK also do outings a few times a year. Some of the outings we’ve been to are: 10 Downing Street, Kew Gardens, Southend on Sea for Fish and Chips, Bletchley Park, Ruislip Lido, Hotel Chocolat and Blenheim Palace.
Dementia Club UK is a place of respite where you can forget about all your problems and challenges and just have fun. You will meet and make friends with other carers in a social atmosphere whilst enjoying a cup of tea/coffee and lovely cakes. You are in a place where if you want to talk about your problems and challenges you can rest assured that you will be understood. We also have our 2 GPs who volunteer their time and attend most sessions offering to take your blood pressure and provide you with any medical advice.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
