As part of our response to COVID-19, we are delivering Telephone Reminiscence Groups. We are working with a number of existing memory cafes, and other groups to help bring isolated people living with dementia, and their carers together. Hour long sessions involve chatting, telling stories, listening and enjoying each others company. They are proving to be a vital part of support for those who are still at home. Thank you to the Rayne Foundation, The Tudor Trust and St Monica Trust for enabling us to run these vital groups.
