Today we had 34 members – it was a lovely warm summer day. I started members with some singing which they all enjoyed and then I announced Laurie’s 94th birthday which we celebrated in the usual Dementia Club UK way.
Laurie was very touched by the attention he received and wanted to say a few words to everyone about his life. He spoke about his time during the war and how he met his wife and then when he lost her through dementia. Everyone was very touched by his life story. Laurie continued to say how Dementia Club UK has changed his life and how many good friends he has made.
The session then followed with Kevin’s quiz which was brilliant as always and then this followed with exercises and singing in the garden as it was such a lovely day.
