Typical Dementia Activities at The Bine

Our aim at The Bine is ┬áto set people with dementia to work on activities and projects that they’ll find meaningful, purposeful – and fun. The best dementia activities will have an outcome, giving the participants a sense of achievement and pride.

Bine members with more advanced dementia will be able to contribute less, and may need a lot of help. That’s fine. The way we’re setting the Bine up, there will always be plenty of helpers around – including people with mild dementia. And whether we have dementia or not, it’s always good to feel included in a happy team that’s making things happen.

  1. Alan,

    This sounds great.

    A couple of projects that could be facilitated in this type of setting;
    Supporting children in local schools with reading. – And/or other skills that individuals may have.
    Reading for Newspapers for the Blind

    best regards,
