UK Dementia Congress, Nottingham 2013

The UK Dementia Congress is a great opportunity for us to talk about our Creative Spaces and Let Nature Feed Your Senses projects and to host a poster presentation about how we are using the outdoors to rebuild links between people with dementia and the wider community.

It is a sad fact that people living with dementia often become socially isolated. Gardens and plant-related activities are a great way of rebuilding connections that have been lost - they become places that bring people together, where young and old find things to share and where people feel connected with the natural rhythms of day to day life.
