DEMENTIA ADVENTURE

Dementia Adventure

"Dementia Adventure connects people living with dementia with nature and a sense of adventure."

It interests me that this quite simple idea of people with dementia going out and doing things must be quite effective.

On some level, there is still the ability to walk and 'do', bringing with it a sense of control and autonomy. Plus all the added benefits of outdoor pursuits are incorporated within it.

This is obvioulsy only successful for the few that are still quite active (and perhaps have to money to go on these trips). I'm not sure how many could save for one of these trips on their £28 a week personal allowance...

But, I do think that elements of this could be scaled down to a walk in the local park, or even garden if it's too difficult to organise the logisitics.
