Apr 3, 2023 | Session Blogs

To all my Amazing Volunteers, thank you so much for today! I’m sure you will agree that we all had a fabulous time! There is no session in May as it falls on a Bank Holiday. See you on 5th June!

Our monthly Dementia Club UK session was held on 3rd April at Sha’arei Tsedek Synagogue in Whetstone.

Our members were served tea, coffee, delicious biscuits and cakes at the start of our session and were happy chatting to each other.

Stephen, one of our amazing volunteers then gave a short presentation explaining the Jewish festival of Passover which starts this Wednesday. Our members found it very interesting and asked lots of questions. Thank you so much Stephen! The wonderful Jane then led an exercise session which all our members participated in and enjoyed.

We had Dr Rebecca with us who took blood pressure readings for anyone who wanted it done and also gave everyone the option for their hearing to be checked.Thank you so much Dr Rebecca!

This was followed by a lively session of entertainment provided by James Le Bec and his lovely assistant Joy. James sang 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 & everyone got very involved! It was great fun!

James, one of our members, sang a beautiful song which was so lovely to listen to! Thank you James!

18 members and carers attended the session with the assistance of seven helpers who were:- Justine, Caroline, Stephen, Gilda, Dot, Melissa, Keith and Lisa.
