Memory Lane Club - Happy Birthday

This popular club has gone from strength to strength since it first opened its doors in March 2015. The friendly club operates a drop-in for people with dementia and their carers every Wednesday morning from 10.30am to 12.30pm. 

Recommended by GPs, right from its opening it has been well supported – news quickly spread across the area that Sacred Heart Parish Lounge on Edge Hill was the place to be each Wednesday morning. 

Run by volunteers, the purpose of the club is to provide a welcoming space where there can be chat, some fun, laughs and a range of activity for those with dementia and their carers. An additional benefit is the opportunity provided for carers to meet and share experiences with other carers and volunteers, many of whom themselves have had personal experience of looking after a loved one with dementia. 

A lively party to celebrate one year of successfully serving the local community took place in mid-March. Balloons, birthday cake – and candles - accompanied by the customary singing of ‘Happy Birthday’ were the order of the day. Party games followed – and accompanying laughter as we all competed for mini-prizes. In particular the party provided the opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the new friendships that have been made during the past year. 

As the Club moves into its second year, we want to encourage any carers of those with dementia that we are a local resource for them. Please do drop in any Wednesday morning along with your loved one. You will receive a warm welcome, will meet new people and it’s all free of charge.  Give it a go!
