Art Exhibition  and Dementia Awareness Week

We will be setting up our art exhibition which will feature work done by people living with dementia and also carers – please let us know if you have any pieces you would like to share and we will be happy to come and pick them up.
The Stamford Arts Centre gallery is open daily between 9 am – 9pm so our exhibition will hopefully be seen by lots of people.
The exhibition will not only showcase our art but will highlight other ways our charity supports people affected by dementia in our little corner of Lincolnshire.
Everyone is invited to the opening of our exhibition which will be on the evening of Tuesday 15 May between 6–8pm.
A local artist, Karen Neale, will be the official opener and we hope we will also be joined by the “great and the good” i.e. local dignitaries, businesses, supporters, other charities etc. If you have any ideas about who we should invite then please let us know – we’re open to all suggestions. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness and we want to do the very best we can.
We will also be running some taster sessions based around our regular therapeutic activity groups which are open to everyone:
  • Art for All:Tuesday 15 May from 11am–1pm
  • Tai Chi:Wednesday16 May, at The Arts Centre between 2–3pm
  • Singing Together: Thursday 17 May between 1–3pm
We are also hoping to run a couple of Dementia Friends sessions.

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)
