Sha’arei Tsedek – 4th December 2023

Dec 4, 2023 | Session Blogs

Our monthly Dementia Club UK session was held on 4th December at Sha’arei Tsedek Synagogue in Whetstone.

Our members were served tea, coffee, delicious biscuits, and beautiful homemade cupcakes (courtesy of Caroline) at the start of our session and were happy chatting to each other.

The wonderful Jane then led an exercise session which all our members participated in and enjoyed.

Members, Elaine and Malcolm were both celebrating birthdays and they were given a small cake with a sparkler candle in and we all sang Happy Birthday to them!

This was followed by a lively session of entertainment provided by James Le Bec and his fabulous 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! Justine, session leader, presented James and Joy with a Christmas gift to say thank you to both of them on behalf of DCUK for all the fantastic entertainment that they have provided this last year and to show our appreciation of them both.

Thank you so much to Dr Rebecca who came along to take blood pressure readings to those that wanted this.

James, one of our members, sang a song called ‘That Old Black Magic’ and everyone loved listening to him! He is so good!

29 members and carers attended the session including five helpers who were:- Justine, Gilda, Stephen, Louis & Lisa.
