We founded Mindforyou Ltd. after personal and professional experience showed there were limited holiday options for people living with dementia and their carers. Everybody you meet on our holidays, from the cook to the driver understands dementia. We focus on creating the most relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere for your holiday & giving you both extra support when you need it.
Where do MindforYou go?
Our holiday destinations have been chosen by you our guests, as places to visit to rekindle happy memories. We use dementia friendly rented properties to create a safe, ‘extended family’ holiday.
All the houses have ensuite bedrooms and cosy communal spaces where we can eat, drink and relax together.
What does a MindforYou holiday offer?
We offer a choice of activities both at the house or at an attraction for you to enjoy individually or together throughout your holiday. These can be anything from quietly reading your newspaper, taking a steam train or enjoying an evening at the theatre. Our compassionate and caring staff are on hand to give you extra support (MYTime) from 9 am – 9 pm so you can enjoy quality time together or individually. We capture your holiday with photographs that we share together on the last evening. Every day we provide a choice of hot and/or cold breakfast and a two-course home cooked evening meal, all selected from your favourite foods. We can arrange your travel to and from the holiday. We offer optional day trips during the holiday which have an additional cost.
What happens after your MindforYou holiday?
Your favourite holiday photo memories can be shared with your family and friends either on your computer, photobook or on a CD. We help you to continue the friendships you make on our holidays by creating networks that allow you to easily keep in touch with each other. Sharing your valuable feedback allows us to improve, develop and create more holiday opportunities for people living with dementia and their carers.
Why is MindforYou right for you?
We take the time to get to know you both of you, understand what you want to do on your holiday and how we can help you relax and enjoy it.
Our questionnaire, face to face meetings and holiday support plans mean that our holidays are personalised to you.
