Our Sessions / Pricing
All Sorts run fun & relaxed groups, for people with
mild to moderate Dementia, who want to socialise in an understanding environment, whilst their loved ones gain a 4.5 hour much needed break from their caring roles.
Our groups have a fantastic team of Dementia Friends Support Workers, and volunteers who assist in the running and implementing of activities and entertainment throughout the day.
Every member of the team shows great understanding, patience and empathy, and also receive regular updates and new training in dementia care to ensure best practice.
We also ensure there is a trained first aider in every group.
THE FIRST SESSION IS FREE
The group costs' £40 per day, this includes hot drinks, biscuits, a hot meal and a pudding.
