Dementia can be a debilitating and isolating condition, but recent research has shown that Tai Chi can help to improve symptoms. Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice that involves slow, graceful movements and deep breathing. The gentle, repetitive motions of Tai Chi can help to ease anxiety and improve balance and coordination. For people with dementia, Tai Chi can provide a much-needed sense of calm and connection. Central Hall Keighley offers Tai Chi classes for people with dementia every Tuesday. The classes are led by a qualified instructor and are open to people of all levels of ability. If you or someone you know is living with dementia, please come and join us for a relaxing and supportive session.
A memory box can be a great way to help people with dementia connect with their past and present. Every Wednesday, the Keighley Dementia Friendly group meets to share memories and create new ones. The group members bring in items that are special to them, such as photos, mementos, and keepsakes. These items are placed in a memory box, and everyone takes turns looking through the box and sharing stories about the items. The group also participates in activities that help to stimulate memories, such as listening to music from the past or looking at old photographs. The memory box is a valuable tool for helping people with dementia connect with their past and present. It is also a wonderful way for group members to get to know one another and build relationships.
Every Thursday, a group of great people get together at Dementia Friendly Keighley to enjoy some crafting. The group is open to anyone living with dementia, as well as their carers. The projects are always different, but they often involve painting, collage, and sculpture. Everyone has a great time chatting and laughing while they work, and the finished products are always impressive. Crafting is a great way to socialize and stay active, both mentally and physically. It’s also therapeutic, providing a much-needed outlet for creativity and self-expression. Best of all, the friends at Dementia Friendly Keighley always have a lot of fun.
