Hertswise groups in Letchworth and Hitchin last week decorated coasters for Dementia Action Week, focusing on the forget-me-not. As you can see, they are all different and the clients really enjoyed decorating them!
Our Hertswise service is to support people living with Dementia, Memory Loss and Mild Cognitive impairment.
During our group last week, we overheard our clients talking, he turned to another and said ‘We are all from different backgrounds and jobs, but this brings us all together’
This not only made us smile, but we couldn’t have worded it better ourselves.. and the perfect way to start Dementia Action Week. Like to know more about Hertswise? www.hertswise.org.uk or call on 0300 123 4044
The first Carers Respite group at Hampson Park went very well and 11 clients attended. They enjoyed a hot meal and had fun with a piñata, amongst other activities.
All the carers said they didn’t know what to do with themselves, and are now making plans for their next four hour break.
A huge thank you to the incredibly talented Woodwind of Stortford for playing at Hoddesdon Hertswise memory group.
They brought musical fun, enjoyment and so great dance moves 💃

Last Thursday, Pam and Dave, members of one of our Dementia hubs, had a lovely morning at St Vincent de Pauls school in Stevenage. They helped the children from the school to plant Crocuses in the garden.
The Rotary club organised it and the Mayor attended. The crocuses were planted to create awareness of people living with dementia and that people living with the disease can still live life as much as anyone else.
