Dementia-friendly walks, nature activities and gardening groups

We have set up these walks and nature activities for people living with dementia and their carers to get outside and meet like minded people. There are now eight groups running in different parts of Cornwall, some focus on gentle walks while others engage in gardening and pottery.

The walking groups are gentle ambles rather than rambles and a chance to explore the landscape (both natural and industrial), chat and get some fresh air. The walks are short and flexible to suit the needs and wants of the group each week (not to mention the weather). Best of all we always aim to finish with a hot cuppa and a biscuit, we have earned it after all! We know that walking and exercise in general really helps improve circulation, promotes restful sleep and can enhance moods. We also know that spending time outdoors and connecting with nature can enhance general feelings of well-being.
