DSSL January 2018 Newsletter

Please do read and download the latest Dementia Support South Lincs Newsletters by Memory Health Worker Kate Marshall: Dementia Support Newsletter – January 2018

Are Danie and Sharon having too much fun at work? We hope so!

We introduce you to our new Dementia Support Worker, Sharon Scott. Sharon came on board at the very end of last year and she has already become an asset to our team. We are very lucky to have found her. She has a great deal of experience in health and social care, recently working for Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust and Alzheimer’s Society. She brings with her up to date knowledge of dementia care in South Lincolnshire but more importantly, a warm and caring personality and a ready smile.

  • Singing Together sessions take place at The Danish Invader, Empingham Road, Stamford PE9 2SX on the first Thursday of every month from 1–3pm.
  • Members of our Art for All group are busy getting ready for their next exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre during Dementia Awareness Week (14–21 May)
The support group/coffee mornings continue to run as usual in The Deepings, Stamford and Bourne. These groups are open to carers, their partners living with dementia and former carers. Everyone affected by dementia is welcome. They are a great opportunity to hear more about upcoming activities and events, meet up with old friends and make some new ones – all of whom understand the challenges that living with dementia can sometimes bring. We meet between 10am –12pm on the 2nd Friday of the month at Blackstones’ Sports and Social Club, 28 Lincoln Road, Stamford PE9 1UU; the 3rd Monday of the month at Deeping Community Centre, 2 Douglas Road, Market Deeping PE6 8PA ; and on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at Bourne Corn Exchange, Abbey Road,  Bourne PE10 9EF (park at the back in the market car park)
