Dementia Café Visits the Theatre
On Tuesday 16th August, we took 30 clients, who attend our Dementia Café in Colchester, to see the Summer Show at the Westcliff Theatre in Clacton, and what a spectacular show it was.
There was a wide variety of entertainment which included singing, dancing, comedy, magic and ukulele and banjo-uke playing aplenty!
One of Dementia Friends key messages is that ‘people can still live well with dementia’ by remaining active, and to carry on doing things that they enjoy.
With a coach for transport, and supported by 2 members of staff and 5 of our regular volunteers, this outing enabled many of our clients to access the wider community, which they may not have the confidence to do on their own.
The feedback from all those that attended was that they had a good time.
‘It was an excellent show’
‘I thought it was brilliant’
‘I just think it was amazing’
‘Thank you for a lovely afternoon’
G commented that he really enjoyed the show.
P said ‘It took my mind off everything that is going on’
R said, ‘It was amazing, I don’t usually find comedians very funny, but he was really good’, and I could see from where I sat that R was thoroughly enjoying herself!
W said ‘It was uplifting and the whole trip was very well-organised’
