Famous Mums & Dads



As it is 'Father's Day' on 21st June, we started by sharing a picture of our fathers and saying a little about them. Some members who were fathers brought pictures of their children. It was a lovely way to start the session.


We then moved on to our picture and music quiz. The 'share screen' facility on 'Zoom' (other providers are available) allowed members taking part in our 'Virtual CST Friendship Group' at home to see full screen images and video clips.


Loud singalongs were pretty much the order of the day!

He recently retired from working as a Community Mental Health Nurse within a Young Onset Dementia Service and continues to contribute to weekly CST 'Friendship Group' sessions as a volunteer co-facilitator.

 

He has been keeping a weekly 'Young Dementia CST Blog' to share and archive tried and tested activities resources, with the ultimate aim of providing an 'off the shelf' resource library of weekly themed CST sessions which can be used on rotation throughout the year. 

 

The main aim of this website is to share experience and resources freely, in order that others can dip in and out and use some or all of the materials provided in their own CST work. Thus it is hoped, facilitating and supporting the provision of uplifting and enjoyable sessions that optimise people with dementia's quality of life.

This site is not owned by or affiliated to any organisation. It’s a personal commitment, a not for profit exchange of ideas and a resource library which aims to enable more widespread use of CST approaches for people with dementia. 

To this end, 'Guest Blogs' are VERY welcome, but bearing in mind that no images of clients are to be used without their express written informed consent.
