Dementia Adventure, connecting people living with dementia with nature and a sense of adventure, offering a 5 day/4 night sailing break around Maldon, Essex between 13th and 17th October.
A break on board a Thames Sailing Barge designed with people living with dementia and their partners and/or families in mind.
Dementia Adventure aims to help you maintain a connection to nature and a sense of adventure while living with dementia. They work with experienced local operators and provide their own leaders and volunteers so that everything on the break runs smoothly.
Dementia Adventure are working with Sea Change to provide this break. Sea Change is a charity which was formed in 2007 to provide residential opportunities in order to embed personal development and offer accreditation of learning through sailing. They usually do this with young people, but were keen to work with Dementia Adventure to see how this kind of experience works with people living with dementia.
