This was a very busy session. The session started with a presentation from Luciana and John from Barnet REMAP. Their website can be found below:
Luciana explained to members about REMAP and how they have helped many people regain lost skills. Volunteers use their ingenuity and skills to make special equipment tailor made for people. Some of the pieces of equipment are simple, some more complex, some are new designs and others are modifications to existing products but everything made is given free.
Lisa then announced to members that there was a birthday to celebrate. It was Mariana’s 84th Birthday today and this was celebrated in the usual DCUK way.
The session then followed with Moshe who as usual entertains members really well. Everyone was up dancing. We also had 2 visitors today. We had Despina Pilavakis - Group Coordinator for Alzheimer's Society Barnet, Enfield and Haringey who is based at Barnet Dementia Club Salvation Army Hall in Hendon. We also had a new volunteer David Brill who has just finished studying medicine at University and will be starting to work at Barnet Hospital soon. In the meantime however David would like to volunteer at the sessions for a few weeks.
Thank you to my husband Mark for helping to set up and helping during the session.
