Dementia Social Club

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.

 


Objectives

  • Create opportunities for caregivers, persons with dementia, and those with young onset dementia to participate in meaningful activities

  • Sharing of information and experiences among caregivers

  • Enable and support caregivers to reconnect with others and the community


Admission Criteria

  • 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
