Our monthly Dementia Club UK session was held on the 2nd December at Sha’arei Tsedek Synagogue in Whetstone and led by Justine.
Our members were served tea, coffee, delicious biscuits and cake at the start of our session and were happy chatting to each other. Our members then participated in an exercise session which was lead by the lovely Jane. They thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was Connie, one of our member's birthday and we gave her a birthday cake and sang 'Happy Birthday' to her!
James LeBec, our wonderful entertainer, has decided to retire from his London gigs and therefore we would not be seeing him anymore! Lisa, Chairman of Dementia Club UK, presented James & Joy - his partner - with gifts from everyone at Dementia Club UK. We are all very sad, but also extremely grateful for the wonderful performances, fun and much laughter that they have provided to DCUK!
We wish them both good health and happiness in the future. James entertained our members with a variety of popular songs to which many of the members and helpers danced. He also did a music quiz and our members had to guess the name of the song! It was very funny & very competitive! 24 members and carers attended the session with the assistance of five helpers from the synagogue who were:- Justine, Stephen, Caroline, Dot & Judy.
