Introduced on 1 November 2021, Dementia Social Club is a new care model that empowers caregivers, persons with dementia, including those with young onset dementia, to make contributions to the Club and community-at-large.
The Club provides a family approach for caregivers to participate in purposeful and meaningful activities with their loved ones. It is a social gathering place to receive skills training and peer support. As part of the Club, caregivers can build a support network, where they can develop self-care skills, forge supportive relationships with other caregivers and to organise or lead activities and events.
- Persons with dementia must attend with an accompanying caregiver
- Persons with dementia (mild to moderate stage of dementia)
- Diagnosis of dementia by a medical doctor (excludes persons diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment)
- Admissions will be approved on a case-by-case basis
