Our Dementia Club session today was attended by 11 members. We also had 4 members of the Rotary Club, 3 from the Church plus Lisa and Mark.
Our doctor Rebecca Hatjiosif also attended the session and some members took the opportunity to have their blood pressure taken.
The session started with a surprise visit from Maz and Faz who introduced some new and very interesting ball games to the members. Members were given different sized balls and tried to catch them. Maz and Faz finished their show with a game of bingo but this bingo is slightly different as it is called ‘Pingo’ and everyone is a winner. Everyone participated and enjoyed the games.
The session then continued with chair yoga by Richard. Richard did some interesting and fun exercises for about 30 minutes. Again, all the members joined in and had a laugh too.
The yoga session was then followed with our usual music entertainer, James Le Bec, who sang various familiar old songs. James had the help of his assistant Joy for this session. James then asked the members to identify various songs and when they guessed them correctly, they were asked to throw a large dice to get points. Everybody enjoyed James singing and some members even got up and danced.
Thank you to our church warden Andrew for preparing and setting up the venue and our volunteers Sue and Brenda for making teas and coffees. Thank you also to our Rotarians from Barnet; John, Jim, Malcolm and Victor. Also, many thanks to Doctor Rebecca Hatjiosif for her support, plus Lisa and Mark for their continuous support making the Dementia Club at St John’s Church successful.
