The Alive Meeting Centres offer support for people with a recent diagnosis of a dementia, and people living with a mild to moderate dementia and their carers.
Practical help – information to support living well and independently
Social support – be part of a friendly community and develop connections
Emotional support – encouraging a positive self-image and building resilience
We aim to improve the wellbeing of both people with a dementia and their carers, helping them to cope in adjusting to the changes that living with a dementia brings.
Our person-centred approach encourages people to identify their own support needs.
Members plan and engage in activities which are interesting, stimulating and fun, supported by trained staff and volunteers. Members are encouraged to design activities based on personal interests, hobbies, life experiences and abilities.
We run three Meeting Centres (Clevedon, Portishead and Nailsea) based in dementia friendly and accessible venues with plenty of free parking.
When? All three centres are open between 10am and 3pm. Tuesdays: Clevedon. Wednesdays: Portishead. Thursdays: Nailsea
